VIDEO: Chad and King’s Mill Hospital launch £750,000 MRI scanner campaign

CHAD is calling on our kind-hearted readers to dig deep and play a massive part in modernising the MRI facilities at King’s Mill Hospital.

We have teamed up with hospital bosses to launch a £750,000 fundraising appeal to help the medical facility purchase a new state-of-the-art MRI scanner.

Hospital bosses say the brand new scanner will revolutionise the service they offer and allow them to treat patients quicker, safer and allow them to diagnose illnesses at an earlier stage.

The new MRI scanner - a medical imaging technique used in radiology to visualize internal structures of the body in detail - is expected to be used over the next seven years to treat hundreds of thousands of patients across Mansfield and Ashfield.

Donations to our MRI appeal can be made by visiting Chad receptions, calling the customer services department at King’s Mill Hospital on 01623 672222, by visiting Sherwood Forest Hospital’s NHS Trust website or by cheque.

All cheques should be made payable to Sherwood Forest Hospitals Charitable Funds.
