Scannappeal, a registered charity, was launched in 1987 initially to raise funds to provide scanning equipment for hospitals within the Buckinghamshire NHS Trust. Since that time, over £8m has been raised for a variety of advanced life saving medical equipment for Wycombe, Amersham and Stoke Mandeville hospitals. Currently a piece of Scannappeal funded equipment is used to diagnose or treat a local patient every ten minutes.
Our current appeal for Wycombe Hospital is for £125,000 for a state of the art 3D heart scanner. This will be of particular importance to patients with heart disease and other heart complications as well as to breast cancer patients taking the drug Herceptin, which can weaken the heart.
2012 will be our Silver Jubilee year and we would be delighted if you could support Scannappeal through greater online visibility. In these uncertain times, it is more important than ever for us to spread awareness of Scannappeal’s aim – to work independently of the NHS, directly funding the most advanced equipment possible for local hospitals. I hope that you can help us as I am sure that many of the visitors to your site will know someone who has benefited from our work.
