New Mammography Scanner Proving Vital at Dorset Hospital


9:37am 1st October 2012

It's been up and running for a few months now so Wessex FM has been back to Dorset County Hospital, to see how Staff has been getting on with their new Mammography Scanner.

The high tech bit of kit was purchased in May thanks to a massive fundraising appeal which was supported by us here at Wessex FM.

Dozens of events and good deeds were done to raise the £4,600 needed to buy the machine, from head shaving, netball tournaments, dinner evenings and sporting challenges.

Women in South Dorset now have ease of access to the latest breast cancer screening technology.

Stella Campbell is an Advanced Practitioner at the Hospital, she says they've got one of the best models "we're quite unique in technology that we now have, one that can evolve in the future."
