Health scans by Tesco condemned

4th September 2009

Supermarket giant Tesco has been criticised for offering vouchers for health scans through its Clubcard loyalty scheme.

The Society of Radiographers says the CT scans involve a risk from exposure to radiation but that is not made clear to Clubcard customers before they take up the offer. It wants to see the promotion stopped but Tesco has responded by saying the service is provided by the firm Lifescan and that it employs qualified staff and explains any risks to customers.
