Thanks to you, we funded a brand new Ultrasound Sherlock machine for our Oncology Unit at Furness General Hospital (FGH). Jayne Bickerstaff, Oncology Unit Manager at FGH said, “On behalf of everyone in the Oncology Unit we cannot thank local people, including the many people who have, or are currently undergoing treatment on our unit enough.

“It’s thanks to their incredible support that last year we were able to apply to Bay Hospitals Charity to purchase a brand-new Ultrasound Sherlock machine.

“This new machine allows our clinicians to insert a pic line, which is a device we use when treating patients so they don’t need cannulation. The difference this makes to the care we can offer our patients is phenomenal."

"The Sherlock machine has a better screen and is more accurate. We are currently training staff on how to use the new Sherlock machine and, once trained will mean we are able to treat more patients each day, reducing the time patients previously spent having to go to our X-ray department”.
