Patients to book own chest X-rays under new cancer self-referral pilot


I can see how this will go. "I want an x Ray, the one for cancer" (later) Your chest x Ray is normal. "So I don't have cancer?" I can't say that. Your chest x Ray is normal. "so I could have cancer, then? I want a scan." You should see your GP immediately if you're worried.
