The vice-dean of the School of Healthcare studies has been awarded a Fellowship of the College of Radiographers in recognition of his outstanding contribution to the profession.

John Newton, who is also director of radiography at the School, was presented with the award by the Society and College of Radiographers at a recent ceremony held in Birmingham during the UK Radiological Congress.

John qualified as a radiographer in India in 1966, came to Cardiff in 1973 as lecturer in radiography and has been actively involved in the profession for more than 40 years.

A Fellowship is the highest award conferred by the College and was given in recognition of John’s promotion of the science and practice of radiography, his activities with professional bodies related to the profession, and his contribution to educational developments in the field.

His ambassadorial roles both nationally and internationally were also acknowledged. Commenting on the award, John Newton said: "It is a great honour and a matter of pride to be elected a fellow of one’s professional body; it feels good to receive the recognition for the contributions made to the profession of radiography over many years".
