Agfa HealthCare territory manager Ges Shilvock joins Newquay clinical imaging assistant Lin Stephens, Agfa key account manager Rachael Benson, Royal Cornwall superintendent radiographer Geoff Cooke, Newquay senior radiographer Sue Sharp and Agfa financial manager Tajinder Ghere.
Agfa HealthCare has announced that its two-year fund-raising effort for x-ray equipment at Newquay Hospital came to fruition with the handover of a DX-Si x-ray room, incorporating the DX-S high speed computed radiography system.
Agfa’s DX-Si system is a replacement for a floor-mounted x-ray system, which was nearly 20 years old.
The x-ray room at Newquay Hospital has been completely revamped to house the new equipment in a more ergonomic layout. The fund-raising, organised by Newquay Hospital’s League of Friends, raised £60,000 towards the project, with Cornwall and Isle of Scilly Primary Care Trust contributing £100,000.
