Primary school children from Keiss and Newton Park Primary in Wick got to the bones of the matter with two Caithness radiographers working with the NHS.

NHS radiographer Aimee Calder was recently invited to Keiss Primary to teach pupils about various aspects of the human body and the importance of bones. So impressed were the young students that they sent her a lovely thank you card.

Aimee, along with her colleague Claire Risbridger were also invited to a careers event at Newton Park Primary where they got to explain more about their role and how they support patients.

There was a lot of interest from pupils on the day.

A NHS Highland spokesperson said: "Hopefully we’ll see them at a later date when they join NHS Highland as radiographers."
