Speaker info

Sue Johnson

Sue’s role is as a professional officer in clinical imaging at the Society and College of Radiographers. She is one of a small team of radiographers working in the Professional and Education department. One element of her role is to deliver professional guidance and provide support for radiographers. Sue currently leads the SoR work on medicines management and prescribing. Sue is a diagnostic radiographer with over 30 years’ experience. Her clinical career culminated in her becoming a Clinical Manager in the Radiology Department at Derby Hospitals where she also managed the Breast Unit for 18 months. Sue spent some time mid-career as a part-time lecturer in radiography at the University of Derby eventually deciding that management in an x-ray Department was more enticing than an academic career. Sue has been an enthusiastic supporter of radiographers professional development and has a long association with the Society and College of Radiographers in various lay positions including holding the position of President in 2011.

Dianne Hogg

Dianne is currently seconded to this two-year role in NHS England. Her substantive post is as non-medical prescribing lead for East Lancashire Hospitals NHS Trust for all the non-medical prescribing professions. and co-chair of the North West Non-medical Prescribing (NMP) Leads’ Network. The Chief Professions Officers’ Medicines Mechanisms programme aims to enable certain health professions to maximise their ability to improve the patient’s care, experience and safety through consideration of the use of mechanisms such as patient group directions and exemptions in legislation for supply and administration of medicines, and amending the lists of controlled drugs that can be prescribed by podiatrists and physiotherapists. Dianne has been a nurse for over 30 years and a prescriber for over half that time; she has co-authored a number of published papers including several about both therapy and diagnostic radiographer prescribing.
