Cancer charity SURE buys £550,000 scanner for Taunton’s Musgrove Park Hospital

A charity has raised £550,000 for a new scanner to help determine treatment plans for cancer patients at Taunton’s Musgrove Park Hospital. The advanced medical imaging machine, funded by the Somerset Unit for Radiotherapy Equipment, is expected to be in operation in Musgrove’s radiotherapy department from spring 2018, when the current scanner reaches the end of its serviceable life. It means that patients with most cancers can continue to be treated locally without having to travel to Bristol.
