HOSPITAL staff are celebrating the success of an appeal which allowed them to unveil a cutting edge eye scanner to help save the sight of thousands of patients.
The Heidelberg eye scanner, which cost more than Pounds 175,000, has advanced components which allow staff at James Cook University Hospital in Middlesbrough to diagnose patients quicker because of the high quality images it produces. More than Pounds 84,000 was contributed to a charity appeal by fundraisers, which added to a Pounds 120,000 grant from drugs company Novartis.
Fundraisers organised a speed dating event, climbed Ben Nevis and even dedicated their 60th wedding anniversary party to raising funds.
