Malton Hospital will soon take delivery of a new state-of-the-art digital X-ray scanner worth thousands of pounds, thanks to the hospital’s League of Friends.
The charity originally bought an X-ray scanner for the hospital in 1990 which recently broke down.
Jezz Kipling, chairman of the League of Friends, said: “We are very proud that we have been able to help the hospital and its patients in this way. The sole purpose of the Friends is to support the services of Malton, Norton and District Hospital by purchasing additional equipment for patients and staff.”
The scanner will become the latest equipment bought by the charity which has made nearly £2.1 million of donations over the past 36 years.
“We would like to thank the people of the Ryedale for their continued and loyal support,” said Mr Kipling. “We would not be able to make such a difference without their continued help.”
