Welcoming Sheffield’s PETCT unit are consultant radiologist Dr Eleanor Lorenz, Lord Mayor of Sheffield Councillor Graham Oxley, Philips Healthcare’s Paul Cropper, Alliance Medical’s Diane Gray and Tom Hurrell, Philips Healthcare’s David Howard, Andy Bell and Joe Glennon and Alliance Medical’s Leisl Anderson.
The Lord Mayor of Sheffield, Councillor Graham Oxley, opened a new PETCT scanning centre at the Northern General Hospital in Sheffield.
The centre is run on behalf of the NHS by Alliance Medical, as part of a government contract to provide improved access to PETCT for cancer patients in Yorkshire. It replaces a mobile PETCT scanner that served the region from January 2006.
Alliance Medical director Simon Mellor said: “This partnership with Sheffield Teaching Hospitals is vital in helping to deliver the best possible care for all NHS patients.”
