Hospital has appeal machine
Digital equipment for breast cancer screening is now installed at The William Harvey hospital thanks to a threeyear appeal.
The East Kent Breast Cancer Mammography Appeal reached its £1 million target to pay for machines at east Kent’s three acute hospitals.
The equipment gives quicker, clearer breast images, helping ensure faster diagnosis. Donations were made by many organisations and individuals, many of whose families have been affected.
Appeal chairman Jean Byers said: “There have been some wonderful events organised and some breathtaking donations, without which we would not have reached the closure target on time.”
The appeal has closed but supporters will continue events for on-going support for the breast cancer service.
