More than £200,000 has been invested in state-of-the-art X-ray equipment for Malton Hospital, thanks to the generosity of the League of Friends of Malton Hospital.
It replaces the hospital’s aging X-ray with brand new high-tech equipment that increases the reliability of the images created – allowing health professionals the chance of making a better diagnosis.
Jezz Kipling, chairman of the League of Friends of Malton Hospital, said: “We are delighted to fund this investment at Malton Hospital. The current equipment is 23 years old, so it will be of real value to the people of Ryedale that they can receive the most up to date treatment without having to travel to Scarborough or York.
“The support has been phenomenal and we would like to thank all the volunteers, staff, and customers to our charity shop and all the local business and groups who support the League of Friends by holding fundraising and social events.
“All this helps us raise essential money for the equipment we purchase for the hospital and we hope it will serve our community for many years to come.
“We would also like to thank the radiography staff at Malton Hospital and the trust’s capital planning team for all their hard work during the refurbishment.”
