New Slit Lamp and Table for Emergency Department
We have purchased a new slit lamp and table to replace Emergency Department equipment which was over 20 years’ old.
The new slit lamp has superior optics for examining patients’ eyes in more detail. The wheelchair-friendly table means patients with limited mobility are spared the strain of transferring to another chair. This saves time and effort and allows staff to examine more patients per day.
Katie Lear (Emergency Department Sister) and Rhys Harrison (Consultant Ophthalmologist and ED Service Lead) are both overjoyed with the new equipment. Rhys said “I thank the Friends for this most exceptional gift. The optics are fantastic and it is buttery smooth. We really do appreciate your kind support. I now have staff fighting to go in the room with it. So from all of the Emergency Department team, a big thank you.”
This grant cost £21,230.
