Story

We need your help to fund new scanning equipment including much-needed mobile digital X-ray machines for Gloucestershire.

Medical imaging plays a vital role in the early detection, diagnosis and treatment of patients across our hospitals, and is key to rapid treatment in emergency situations. Through our scanner appeal we aim to significantly improve the experience for local people with a wide range of conditions.

Catherine Phillips, Superintendent Radiographer, said:

Having mobile digital X-ray machines would enable our medical teams to view instant images as soon as an X-ray has been taken, allowing very ill patients to be diagnosed and treated immediately. Well be grateful for every donation to our appeal for this new technology.

Mobile digital X-ray machines will support patients across our hospitals by giving instant imaging in situations where it matters most; giving lifesaving treatment for premature babies on our neonatal unit, helping children with serious illness and medical conditions such as cancer, supporting patients in our Emergency Departments and Critical Care Units and for inpatients with conditions such as cancer or heart disease.

In these situations, patients who are too unwell or medically unstable to be moved to the X-ray department can benefit from mobile technology.

Thanks to incredible support from the local community weve raised over £2.4 million for our scanner appeal to date funding imaging technology including three new CT Scanners to help diagnose patients at the earliest opportunity.
