Com­mu­nity char­ity’s gen­eros­ity sees new equip­ment funded

Gloucestershire Echo - - NEWS -

» THE gen­eros­ity of a com­mu­nity char­ity has seen the in­stal­la­tion of new en­doscopy equip­ment at a hos­pi­tal.

Mem­bers of Cirences­ter Hos­pi­tal League of Friends funded the new £18,000 en­doscopy sys­tem, which is now in use at Cirences­ter Hos­pi­tal, which is part of Glouces­ter­shire Care Ser­vices NHS Trust.

Sis­ter Janet Gale said: “It is a much more up-to-date ver­sion of the sys­tem we had pre­vi­ously. “As well as im­proved im­agery, the new en­doscopy equip­ment is wire­less, mean­ing the var­i­ous el­e­ments of the unit can talk to each other. Also, the num­ber of trail­ing ca­bles is dra­mat­i­cally re­duced, mak­ing it eas­ier and far more ef­fi­cient to op­er­ate, plus it has a sec­ond mon­i­tor.”

The hos­pi­tal’s En­doscopy De­part­ment is busier than ever, hav­ing re­cently taken on ad­di­tional ac­tiv­ity, mean­ing more pa­tients can be seen lo­cally.
