Osteoporosis screening is being offered in Eastwood next week.
Scans will be available at Eastwood library on Wednesday, January 11, from 9am until noon for £22.
Fractures are common in post-menopausal women and of those who suffer a hip fracture due to osteoporosis, one in five will die as a result.
Scans for risk of future osteoporotic fracture are not routinely available on the NHS.
