MUSICvCANCER complete the latest phase of investment by funding the new Endoscopy Training Facility at Hartlepool Hospital. The new £15,000 facility including state of the art equipment will help train new Endoscopists from around the UK which in turn will help with the early detection of various cancers.
The facility was officially opened by CEO Alan Foster and Medical Director David Emerton from the North Tees and Hartlepool NHS Foundation Trust.
In attendance also was Professor Matt Rutter, a Consultant Gastroenterologist, who works nationally on bowel screening programmes. He said: “To say I’m impressed is an understatement, this is the very latest in technology and puts Hartlepool at the forefront nationally for endoscopy training.
“The new equipment and facilities will improve training at the trust and in time, hospitals from up and down the country who send their staff here.
“The equipment is so advanced that professionals can link in to live endoscopy scans to review technique and ask for medical opinions not just from national hospitals but also into Europe.”
