Who does the training?

Ian Chell MSc FSRP, the Director, retired from the Department of Health as the Policy Lead for Radiations in January 2017.

Ian teaches as a visiting lecturer at Birmingham City University on the BSc and MSc Biomedical Engineering Degree.  This has helped to simplify the medical locations training.

Ian also recently acted as an expert witness for the Police.

  • Ian started his career as an apprentice in 1976 with Siemens Energy and Automation. He then moved to the medical group in 1981 as an x-ray engineer where he also undertook his MSc in Medical Electronics and Physics at St Barts and the Royal London Medical School.
  • In 1998, Ian moved to the Medical Devices Agency (MDA) as a Medical Device specialist investigating adverse incidents.  While at the MDA (now MHRA), Ian conceived, drafted and led the first edition of MEIGaN which acted as the electrical installation guidance document for medical radiological equipment first published in 2005.
  • In his time at the Department of Health as the Policy Lead for Radiations, Ian’s responsibilities included ownership of the Ionising Radiation (Medical Exposure) Regulations and helped to formulate and finalise the policy for the transposition of the medical exposure aspects of the 2013 Basic Safety Standard Directive that has to become UK legislation by Feb. 2018.  He also chaired high-level cross government meetings and working parties. His role also included the drafting of written briefings for Health Ministers which turned complex scientific issues into plain English – both written and spoken.  Ian was invited to participate in the drafting of the DH 2017 HTM 06-01 Electrical Guidance.
