» Chel­tenham and Glouces­ter Hospi­tals Char­ity has launched a CT Scanner Ap­peal.

Gloucestershire Echo - - SCANNER APPEAL -

The £1.2m ap­peal has been launched to buy two new mo­bile dig­i­tal X-ray ma­chines and three new CT scan­ners for Chel­tenham Gen­eral and Glouces­ter­shire Royal Hospi­tal. Al­most 80,000 peo­ple a year have a CT scan or mo­bile X-ray at the hospi­tals - a num­ber which rises ev­ery year.

This state-of-the-art tech­nol­ogy will make a huge dif­fer­ence for peo­ple with a wide range of con­di­tions, in­clud­ing those fight­ing can­cer or heart dis­ease, emer­gency pa­tients and pre­ma­ture ba­bies who need ur­gent med­i­cal treat­ment.
