Mayor of Bath visits Cancer Unit DSC_0513The Mayor of Bath and Patron of The Positron Scanner Appeal Councillor William Sandry visited the Cancer Unit and was briefed on the benefits to RUH patients of the Positron Scanner by Dr Stewart Redman Consultant Radiologist and Co-Clinical Lead for Radiology at the RUH and was shown the latest cancer radiotherapy equipment by Dr Edward Matthews Head of Radiotherapy Physics at the RUH.

The Mayor, who was accompanied by The Mayoress Mrs Catherine Sandry was impressed that BCUSG, a voluntary charity which has no employees had raised so much over thirty years and continued to influence the way in which cancer services at the RUH were delivered.

The RUH will be the first district hospital to offer Positron scans to cancer patients.

Research shows that following a Positron scan a third of treatments are modified.

The Mayor will be visiting the Cancer Unit again on 11 May 2016 when he will be presenting certificates to those who during the previous twelve months have raised at least £1,000 for the charity.
