Today sees the launch of our new major project ‘The Stars Appeal CT Scanner Campaign’ which aims to raise £650,000 to provide a much needed second CT scanner for the hospital.
The new CT scanner will work alongside the existing one, which is running at full capacity and is one of the busiest in Central Southern England.
Around twelve thousand patients each year will benefit from the new CT scanner, including cancer patients, who will get faster diagnosis; emergency patients who’ve had a stroke or life-threatening injury, who will get their scan even faster when every second counts; and heart patients, who will be able to have scans instead of minor operations.
The NHS will pay for installation costs of approximately £175,000 and annual running costs of approximately £250,000.
Please help us raise £650,000 for the second CT Scanner. We have already had a great start with a recent legacy of £150,000.
