We met lots of people and were able to spread the word about the expert care we offer our patients and how our imaging equipment can help to diagnose conditions at the earliest opportunity. The money raised will allow us to help provide services for more local people and to buy the ‘nice to have’ items to make waiting areas and treatment rooms a more home from home setting for our patients’.
