Friends of Cromer Hospital donate high tech equipment to hospital

The Friends of Cromer and District Hospital are to donate a new flexible cystoscope to the Cromer and District Hospital. The flexible cystoscope is a thin tube used to look inside the bladder to detect abnormal cells and help with an early diagnosis of cancer. Having this piece of equipment means that the hospital will be able to perform more cystoscopies and provide urology one stop clinics.

Anita Martins, Matron at Cromer Hospital said: “We are very grateful to the Friends for this donation which means we can treat more patients in the one-stop setting with patients seeing the Doctor, having a cystoscopy, ultrasound & diagnosis in one afternoon rather than having several trips to the hospital.

Mary Northway, Chair of the Friends said: “The Friends are able to provide items of equipment for the hospital due the generosity of local people, meaning more people can have treatment closer to home”.
