Our Trust was approached by the radiology dept at Poole NHS Trust requesting that we assist them in the purchase of a new Ultrasound Machine for their use. Previously they have shared one with the A & E Trauma department.
The Trust was delighted to agree to this having seen the real need for radiology to have this piece of equipment for themselves at a cost of around £38,000 and these funds had been raised from a number of sources, as always through the generosity of the people of Poole and Dorset overall.
Our picture below shows the Ultrasound Machine being presented by the PHCTT Chairman Stuart Dean to Joanne Halfpenny the UltraSound Superintendent at Poole NHS Trust. Also in the picture are Debbie Fleming the Chief Executive at Poole NHS Trust, Paddy Clement and Dorothy Alder – Trustees of PHCTT and Heather Brown and Karen Ward who had presented a sum towards the purchase earlier with the help of Wareham Conservative Club.
