Four specialist trainees in radiology based at Southend University Hospital and part of the Essex, Bedfordshire and Hertfordshire radiology training scheme, have been awarded bursaries to the value of £1,100.

They were awarded in recognition of academic work completed over the last few years.

The four recipients of this inaugural award were trainees Dr Anam Ali (ST3), Dr Carla Goncalves (ST4), Dr Alan Tan (ST4) and Dr Sakib Moghul (ST3).

Dr Ali and Dr Goncalves received their awards from Dr Sid Liyanage and Dr Tom Latham, co-organisers of the Southend Fellow of the Royal College of Radiologists (FRCR) 2b course and Southend Radiology Registrar (SPR) On-Call courses, in front of other radiology consultants who are part of the teaching faculty.

Dr Sid Liyanage, Consultant Radiologist, said: "The bursaries are testimony to the educational environment and pastoral care we provide with help and support from our radiologists, radiographers and the medical education centre team here at the Trust.

"This money has come from a radiology education fund into which monies generated from two radiology courses, the Southend FRCR 2b course and SPR On-Call course, go."

The courses have generated more than £15,000 in revenue, most of which has been reinvested into improving the educational IT hardware needed to run the courses.
