Woznitza was selected for his clinical and academic leadership skills in diagnostic radiography in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the SoR stated. His research on radiographer reporting and support of advanced practice was singled out for special attention.

"Over the last 18 months Dr. Woznitza, who is a Consultant Radiographer & Clinical Academic at University College London Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust and Senior Lecturer in the School of Allied and Public Health Professions at Canterbury Christ Church University, has focused on research to improve preliminary evaluation of chest imaging to support the rapid diagnosis of COVID-19, and publishing his findings to inform radiographers' work with COVID-19 patients," the SoR said.

He was also appointed as an expert advisor for diagnostic radiography services within the NHS Nightingale Hospital London, the first of the temporary hospitals set up by NHS England for the COVID-19 pandemic, acknowledging his leadership skills and professional credibility for the development of safe and effective services at pace, the SoR pointed out.

Woznitza was the first radiographer in the U.K. to report on neonatal chest x-rays, it added.

More details are available on the SoR website.
