Helen praises fundraisers for MRI at Bishop Auckland Hospital

Last week, Helen visited Bishop Auckland Hospital to see the new state of the art MRI scanner that is already benefitting patients after a fundraising appeal.

Helen said “I’m delighted that in the midst never-ending cuts to hospital budgets and services, we’re seeing some positive development at Bishop Auckland Hospital. I’m really proud of the work that has been done to bring this MRI scanner to our town; a lot of people will benefit from shorter journeys to appointments and faster diagnoses.”

The trust will continue with a fundraising campaign until the end of 2018, as both scanners have been installed early, thanks to manufacturer Philips, who have deferred payment until the end of the year.
