Digital DR X-Ray Room installed

As their major project of 2020 the Friends of Eastbourne Hospital committed to fundraising £430,000 to modernise the radiology facilities at the DGH and make the department digital. Despite a year in which fundraising was much reduced, the target was achieved and the donated equipment is now successfully installed and fully operational. Karen Betts, Clinical Modality Manager in Radiology acknowledged the donation with thanks, saying, “On behalf of the Radiology department I would like to say how extremely grateful we are for the donation from the Friends of Eastbourne Hospital which has enabled us to purchase a new digital DR x-ray room. This equipment gives less dose to the patient than a conventional x-ray unit and is quicker to produce the x-rays, reducing our waiting times. We would also like to thank the Friends of Eastbourne Hospital for their generosity in giving a further donation to purchase a second digital x-ray room and a digital mobile x-ray unit.”
