Alliance Medical as we roll out a further seven fixed complex imaging sites
with them in our estate and I am hoping we can see this go further. We look
forward to working closely with Alliance to further enhance the diagnostic
service and provision we can offer to our respective customers and to pass on
the benefits of our national network accordingly. I wish Guy every success
