Former IPEM Trustee is made an honorary member of the RCR

A FORMER Trustee of IPEM has been made an honorary member of the Royal College of Radiologists.

Dr Bal Sanghera is a Clinical Scientist at the Paul Strickland Scanner Centre in PET-CT imaging for oncology at Mount Vernon Hospital in Northwood, Greater London.

He was nominated by the Royal College of Radiologists for honorary membership after he completed a five-year term on the First FRCR Physics exam committee for radiology trainees.

Dr Sanghera was presented with his honorary membership by Dr Katharine Halliday, President of the RCR.

He said: ‘The role was stimulating and a valuable experience to engage closely with other modality clinical scientists and medical consultants, to view the bigger picture national perspective. Clinical scientists are not always acknowledged for their expert contributions, and it is a privilege to be recognised by clinical colleagues and the RCR.’

Dr Robert Farley, IPEM’s President, said: ‘Congratulations to Bal on being made an honorary member of the RCR. It demonstrates that volunteering opportunities are not only fulfilling in themselves but can often lead to people being rewarded for their valuable expertise and contributions.’
