Social responsibility

We contribute our time and skill to worthy causes and local communities.

At SCP Radiology we believe that an organisation is as much a part of the community as its patients and employees are. That is why we have committed our continuous support to a number of worthy causes, and regularly contribute to charity drives in our branches’ local communities.
