The university is delighted to share that Emeritus Professor, Peter Hogg, has been awarded the Gold Medal of the Society of Radiographers.


Gold medals are awarded every ten years to a maximum of ten recipients from the radiography profession who have made outstanding contributions to radiography. This year the presentation of the Gold Medal is part of the Society’s Centenary celebrations and it is hoped that Peter will be presented with his Gold Medal personally in London at a celebratory event in the autumn.

The gold medal awards are the highest honour the Society of Radiographers can bestow upon a member of the diagnostic and therapeutic imaging profession. These prestigious awards celebrate individuals who have made exceptional contributions to radiography, developed the profession, and advanced the work of the Society and College of Radiographers.

On his award, Professor Peter Hogg, said: “I could not have achieved it without others, it is because of their talents and dedication to research, teaching, and the service we offer to our patients.

“I would particularly like to acknowledge and thank the Department of Radiography staff at the University of Salford. I have worked in that department since January 1993 until August 2020, when I retired, and I am extremely honoured to be offered the Gold Medal as so few are awarded.”

Peter’s Gold Medal comes 13 years after he was awarded Fellow of the College of Radiographers, another award where very few are awarded, with even fewer having been awarded both.

Professor Margaret Rowe, Dean of the School of Health and Society, said:

 “I am incredibly proud to hear that the Society of Radiographers have awarded Professor Peter Hogg with the Gold Medal award for his outstanding contributions to radiography. Peter has been a wonderful ambassador, dedicating so much to the school, our students, and the university.

“Peter recently led on a world first e-learning platform to support radiographers all over the world during the Covid-19 pandemic and this honour couldn’t have been awarded to a more deserving individual. We are all extremely proud to have Peter as part of the university and we look forward to him receiving this prestigious award towards the end of the year, it is extremely well deserved.”
