Osteocare East Midlands - Bone Testing

Janet Gazi, 28/08/2015

Good afternoon everyone

The College is considering inviting Osteocare East Midlands to come to the College to carry out bone density testing for staff. The scan is performed on the heel bone (requiring a bare foot) and is performed within an individual 10 minute consultation during which the result is discussed with you. You will also receive a paper copy of the result to take away, together with further information on lifestyle changes that you can make to improve your bone density if required.

The test would normally cost £80 per person but depending on the number of people interested in being tested this could reduce to as little as £20 per person.

If you are interested in being tested, or would like further information about what is involved, please email Janet Gazi by Monday 7 September at the latest. If there is sufficient interest we will go ahead with the arrangements for the tests to take place in October, probably just before half term.
