Tesco slammed for CT scan Clubcard 'perk'
You might think you need your head examining if you’re prepared to hand over your personal details to a supermarket’s loyalty card scheme but if you’ve got a Tesco Clubcard, it’s one of the perks. Not just your head, but your whole body.
The retail giant has been criticised by The Society Of Radiographers for failing to make clear the associated risks that come with CT scans, which are currently available to Clubcard holders.
The radiographers say that as well as the perils of radiation exposure, CT scans can flag up things that later turn out to be perfectly harmless, leading patients to clog up their GPs surgeries and causing everyone untold sleepless nights.
Tesco – groceries, clothes, electricals, toys and a laser beam up your Harris.
