You don't often find radiographers at smaller health facilities like Kilcoy Hospital, but you can find X-ray operators like EN Sam! ✨ Sam has completed special X-ray training to make life a little easier for the local community.

"Operating an X-ray machine here is really handy. When a patient presents with something like a fracture, I can take their X-ray here and loop them in with a doctor at Redcliffe Hospital via telehealth.

"It means patients don't have to travel an hour or so for an appointment, especially driving on the bumpy roads around here which would likely be painful!

"I've been at Kilcoy Hospital for 10 years and I really love it. You get to know the patients really well and many of them are from the local community so you're always familiar with who you're treating."

This is possible to do as an EN? Well, when I graduate my ENs in October I may just have a new plan for what I may specialise in... 😂

Go Sam Go!!! 🙂

Great to know an EN can extend their skills like this.

Go Sam.

Well done Sam
