MEDICA UKRCO prize will help me in my goal to be ‘paperless’
MEDICA attended this year’s UK Radiological Congress (UKRCO) in Liverpool. Members of our Service Delivery, Clinical Governance, Recruitment and Business Development teams were in attendance, together with Radiologists and Radiographers from our Clinical Advisory team.
MEDICA invited delegates to take part in a quiz about their services and the wider UK teleradiology market. Over 150 delegates took part and were entered into the prize draw for an iPad.
Kate Lewins, a Radiology Project Manager and Senior Radiographer based at Dorset County Hospital NHS Foundation Trust was our 2018 winner. She was presented with her iPad by Andy Bulpett from the MEDICA Business Development team.
On accepting her prize, Kate said “I am pleased I took the time to enter the Medica Quiz at UKRC in Liverpool, I now have a brand new iPad which will really help me to be ‘paperless’ at the many meetings I attend at work!”
