SIRNR Committee 2017

To all SIRNR members past and present, we have now elected a new SIRNR committee.

The committee comprises of:

  • Kelly Harris Chair
  • Kayleigh Hackett Educational Lead
  • Marie Nixon Educational Lead
  • Katherine Forsyth Committee member
  • Mary Donnolley Past Chair

I will be standing down as Chair but will help the new committee establish itself for the next few months in the role of Past Chair.

BSIR would like to ensure that all nurses and radiographers working in IR are fully informed of the work of the SIRNR committee and need to compile an accurate contact list of members or people who wish to be members. To this end could you all contact Julie Ellison at BSIR to confirm you still wish to be a SIRNR member and provide an email address you wish to be made available to SIRNR and BSIR by Friday 29th July.

Please be aware that some emails are often rejected due to firewalls on Trust IT systems so if you are not contacted please let BSIR office know and arrange an alternative email.

Many thanks with your support to me as Chair over the years. I have always found the role extremely interesting, fantastic for networking and meeting you all at the annual conference an absolute pleasure!

Please continue to support SIRNR in having an active voice within BSIR.
