A NEW scanner has been bought by the Friends of St Mary’s Hospital.
The Friends paid £9,942 for a third portable bladder scanner for the team of three continence nurse-advisers, meaning they now have one each.
"It is fantastic the Friends have helped us in this way — it’s just what we needed," said nurse specialist Angela Rawsthorn.
The scanners are used not just in the hospital but in outside clinics, people’s homes and nursing and residential homes, providing information which can help avoid catheterisation.
The ages of those who have recently benefited from the scanners have ranged from 17 to over 100.
