Thursday, 17 July 2014

New scanners hit the road in Herefordshire

Local medical charity Cobalt is celebrating 50 years of providing state-of-the-art medical diagnostic imaging for people living in Herefordshire, Gloucestershire and Worcestershire, working closely with commissioners and NHS England. Cobalt has provided scans for more than 24,000 patients in the past year, both at its imaging centre in Cheltenham and through a fleet of six mobile MRI units, and has worked in partnership with local hospitals to fundraise for equipment that would not usually be available within the NHS.

Herefordshire Freemasons have maintained their support for the charity with a further £500 donation. Samantha Watson, head of fundraising at Cobalt, expressed the charity’s gratitude.
