Urology procedures carried out at the Lister Hospital will be made much easier thanks to new equipment purchased through donations by The Twin Towns Cycling Group and a donor who wishes to remain anonymous

The new state-of-art equipment, which is worth around £37,000, will enable procedures to take place outside of the main theatre environment.

This new method for diagnosing prostate cancer will put the Lister at the front of modern diagnostics again and we will be a regional training centre lead by Urology Consultant Miss Charlotte Foley.

Jim Adshead, Consultant Urological Surgeon at the Lister Hospital said:

‘We are extremely grateful for the generous donations that have made the purchase of this equipment possible. With procedures taking place outside of the main theatre, procedures will be less intimidating, providing a more relaxed environment for our patients’.
