Poole Hospital Cancer Treatment Trust was founded in 1972 by Mrs Marjorie Lewis-Manning, to raise funds for the diagnosis and treatment of cancer and in 1980 the Poole Hospital Body Scanner Appeal was launched.
Since then the dedicated voluntary fundraising and generosity of the people of Poole and further afield, both individuals and organisations have enabled the trustees to provide over £7.5 million to Poole Hospital Foundation Trust for the purchase of equipment. Through out we have remained a voluntary Charity.
Amongst other things our funds met the cost of a new building, the Lewis-Manning Scanner Suite, named in memory of the Trust’s founder and also met the cost of maintaining and upgrading the equipment. Recently we have provided funds for the purchase of a state of the art MRI Scanner and assisted in funding for this to be housed. On the coming pages you can see how we are now planning to assist the hospital and how you may be able to help us.
Over the years through the work of the PHCTT trustees and their supporters, Poole Hospital and patients have benefited from state of the art equipment used in the diagnosis and treatment of cancer. Within the Lewis-Manning Suite is a range of scanners which complement each other in the diagnostic investigation of malignant and non-malignant disease processes. It has been a comfortable and welcoming environment for patients and relatives.
