A LARGER, brighter new Breast Unit was finished just hours before its official opening yesterday.

Pink Ladies Breast Cancer Support Group patron Lynda Walker used a pair of pink scissors to cut the ribbon to open the facility, which used to house the Bulstrode House oncology unit.

Over the last six months the structure has been transformed thanks to £150,000 raised by the Pink Ladies through their last two Sunset Coastal Walk events – for which the Guernsey Press was media partner.

Mrs Walker was impressed with the unit when she was given a tour.

‘It’s lovely and feels very serene,’ she said.

An open day is being held today to allow the public to look around the breast unit, which is situated inside the old Bulstrode House building. Tours of the facility will be available between 10.30am and 1.30pm.

Staff will be on hand to answer questions.

Well done to the "pink Ladies" and Guernsey press helping with the advertising for raising the money.

Incredibly badly done the States of Guernsey who are supposed and empowered by law to take money through taxes for the benefit of Guernsey islanders, to provide exactly these type of hospital facilities.

Guernsey's Treasury ( as well as Jerseys' ) have lost the plot, and so busy spending tax money on nice but not needed conference trips, and silly projects they are leaving the pot well short to pay for decent and necessary health care.

Get your priorities straight you muppets.
