Pink Ladies fund new mammography machine
THE Breast Unit has received its new mammography machine thanks to fundraising efforts by the Pink Ladies.
The new equipment, which was unveiled by the wife of the Lt-Governor, Lady Corder, on Friday, is a state-of-the-art imager which enables mammographers to take more accurate readings.
Jan Coleman, director of hospital services at the PEH, paid tribute to the Pink Ladies.
‘From Health & Social Care we are extremely grateful for all the support from the Pink Ladies’ fundraising to replace this unit for us,’ Mrs Coleman said.
‘The equipment would have been on our replacement plan, but this has allowed us to replace it quicker with this brilliant piece of equipment.
‘As a health service we want to provide the best care to our service users.’
Karen Leach, chairwoman of the Pink Ladies, said it was a fantastic achievement for the charity.
‘As a charity, and as a woman, it’s a fantastic achievement for us as the Sunset Walks, particularly where we’ve raised the money for this investment for the mammography machine.'
