Kelly Greaney

Radiography Technician

Kelly's job title is Radiology Technician at Spire Healthcare

What I do

I am an Assistant Practitioner in radiology. I do outpatient X-rays, generally for hips, knees, hands, shoulders and sometimes abdomen and chest. I work for a private health care firm and not A&E, so we don’t come across many immediate fractures, instead we might get post-fracture X-rays. We can pick up more sinister things on X-ray as it is usually the first port of diagnostic imaging that takes place.


How I became a technician

A typical day in my
working life

A little more about
my everyday role

What I love most about my job

I like the variety. On a daily basis we have things that are pre-booked for us to do but you don’t always know what you will come across. The amount of people you meet as well is amazing.

The best bits about working in a team

Support from everyone you work with is by far the best part of working in a team. You can have a laugh too. Learning from everyone’s skills, especially from those that worked in A&E before they came to Spire.

The most exciting thing I’ve achieved so far in my job

My continual development within my role. I can always push a bit further and I haven’t stopped yet.

The next steps in my career journey

There are a few things I could do. I could train a bit more in CT, MRI or mammography. My main aim is to go on and become a fully-fledged Radiographer which will be a full-time one-year course at university.
