Angela Meadows, Unit Manager

When did you join Alliance Medical?

I joined in 2003. Alliance Medical was one of few providers offering PET/CT at the time of my appointment and I wanted to be part of this new cutting edge technology. Now over 10 years on, the PET/CT modality is still growing rapidly.

What did Alliance Medical do to improve your working life?

Alliance Medical provided me with the flexibility I needed. I worked part time in a mobile position and this worked well for me with my young family.

What have you achieved at Alliance Medical?

My role development within the company has gone from strength to strength. 

Now over 10 years on,  the PET/CT modality is still growing rapidly.

 

My role development within the company has gone from strength to strength. I started out as a PET/CT radiographer before developing a training role for PET and becoming a PET training manager. After this I became a Unit Manager and now manage two facilities and three scanners. I am very fortunate to be able to be part of service delivery for PET/CT, MRI and CT.

 

How do you feel about working at Alliance Medical now, as opposed to when you first joined?

I enjoy my role tremendously, particularly now managing two small teams and those people within my teams. I am very proud of the level of service we deliver and it is not possible without the commitment and dedication of those within my team. In addition it is also of course very rewarding to see the growth of imaging today and to be part of delivering a quality patient focused service.

What is special about working for Alliance Medical?

The people and personalities are all very supportive and willing to help you. Also, the company is very dynamic and I believe at the forefront of medical imaging today!

Helen Melia, Senior Medical Secretary

When did you join Alliance Medical?

I joined in 2007. I had been working in administration for the NHS. I felt I had so much more to offer so decided to move on but wanted to stay in the Health Sector – so Alliance Medical seemed the perfect answer.

What did Alliance Medical do to improve your working life?

I have always had a keen interest in imaging and wanted to make a difference. Our patients are often very nervous and just been diagnosed with cancer. It feels great to be able to help these patients feel as supported as possible, tailoring the service to both their and their clinicians needs and making sure they get the results as quickly as possible.  Patients often leave the department with a smile – what other sector can give you such a feel good factor?  

What have you achieved at Alliance Medical?

I have learned so much about PET CT imaging and how we fit into a patients pathway. I have further developed my skills as a senior medical secretary, utilising many different patient information systems, learning about different medical procedures, treatments and imaging techniques. I am very hungry to learn more! I have made many friends and key contacts throughout the hospitals that refer to us. I feel I have also developed my counselling skills as patients often need support and I am always keen to help.  

How do you feel about working at Alliance Medical now, as opposed to when you first joined?

I feel Alliance has gone through a transition and is now a strong, stable brand that really stands out. Today we have a reputation as a cutting edge imaging provider, seeking out and researching the latest technologies, and utilising the huge cross section of staff skills to produce an excellent service. It’s exciting to think where we will be in 10 years time!

What is special about working for Alliance Medical?

It was a great surprise that although being such a huge company, it is just like a big family. Everyone is very friendly and skills and good practice are shared.

Alliance has realised its potential and knows it’s committed staff are its best resource. The company has a huge future and I am happy to be part of it!
