FRIMLEY Park Hospital welcomed fundraisers including former breast cancer patients to show off its latest technology in the fight against breast cancer.
The new state-of-the-art 3D mammography machine, which cost over £300,000, was purchased with money raised by Frimley Health Charity’s Breast Care Appeal and will allow doctors to diagnose cancers earlier and reduce false positives.
Frimley’s Breast Care Appeal appeal has raised over £1.85 million to date, and in addition to the 3D mammography machine, will also fund a dedicated new unit for the 6,000 people who use the hospital’s breast care services every year.
Andrew House, head of fundraising at Frimley Health NHS Foundation Trust, personally thanked the guests who gathered in the hospital’s radiology department on November 1 for their on-going support.
He said: “So many members of the local community have worked tirelessly to fundraise and lend their support to this project. Your generosity is staggering and we are incredibly thankful to all of you.”
