Thanks to generous donations, Hywel Dda Health Charities, the official charity of Hywel Dda University Health Board, has been able to fund a gynaecology examination chair at a cost of £5,834 for use at Glangwili Hospital, Carmarthenshire.
The chair, which will be used to help patients in the new clinical examination room at Glangwili Hospital, will enable staff to see, review and consult gynaecology cancer patients in a timelier fashion.
Helen Frise-Jones, Gynaecology Oncology Clinical Nurse Specialist, said: “We are incredibly grateful for the donations that have enabled this chair to be purchased for the new clinical examination room.
“The new chair has enabled our services to provide a dedicated Rapid Access room where we can see patients who are suspected or diagnosed of having a gynaecology cancer.
“This new room has sped up the cancer pathway waiting times by us streamlining patients straight into this clinic.”
Nicola Llewelyn, Head of Hywel Dda Health Charities, the official charity of Hywel Dda University Health Board, said: “The support of our local communities enables us to provide services over and above what the NHS can provide in the three counties of Hywel Dda and we are extremely grateful for every donation we receive.”
