Scanner opened by rugby star

Toshiba Northern and Scottish branch manager Mark Holmshaw and account executive David Bibbs with consultant neuroradiologist Dr Daniel Birchall, Jonny Wilkinson, trust chief executive Sir Leonard Fenwick and acting directorate manager for neurosciences Louise Dryden.


England and Newcastle rugby star Jonny Wilkinson returned to Newcastle General Hospital to unveil a new scanner.


Jonny underwent career-saving surgery at the hospital in 2004 and was scanned several times on the previous system.


The replacement system, a Toshiba Aquilion 64 CT scanner, is located in the Neurosciences Centre, which is due to move to new treatment facilities currently under construction at the Royal Victoria Infirmary in Newcastle.
