Morag qualified as a diagnostic radiographer in 1986 and worked in Aberdeen for 12 years specialising in trauma imaging and barium enema practice. In 1998 she left the ‘granite city’ to gain managerial, paediatric and CT experience in South London where she attained a postgraduate certificate in radiographic reporting. In 2003 Morag became an advanced practitioner at Manchester Royal Infirmary specialising in radiographic reporting, minor injuries and training AHPs, ENPs and junior medical staff in image interpretation. Her academic career began in 2005 when she joined the team at RGU. Being part- time has allowed Morag to maintain a clinical role as a bank radiographer in the community hospitals.

Morag teaches across all levels of radiography education at RGU and is a reviewer for the School of Health Sciences SRRG and the British Journal of Radiology.
