The NHS Rotherham Diagnostic Centre, housed within Rotherham Community Health Centre, is to be the first within Care UK to deliver a Dexa scanning service.
In January, Rotherham Osteoporosis and Bone Health service commenced a phased move to the centre, providing an opportunity for closer collaborative working between the independent provider Care UK and Rotherham NHS Foundation Trust.
