A trio of Preston radiographers have learnt about the latest innovations in their field thanks to funding from Rosemere Cancer Foundation.


Therapeutic radiographers Jacqui Hudson, Christina Benn Mackay and Luck Koh were able to attend their professionā€™s national annual conference after the charity spent almost Ā£2,000 on conference fees, accommodation and travel to the Brighton venue.
