RDCH Welfare Trustees donate equipment to Ramsey Cottage Hospital

Tue, 07 Nov 2023

An update to X-ray facilities at Ramsey and District Cottage Hospital (RDCH) is the latest in a series of projects that will benefit patients and service users across the Island.

The funding for the X-ray project has been provided jointly by the Trustees of the RDCH Welfare Fund and the RDCH Endowment Trustees.

Kathleen McDowall, Manx Care’s Radiology Manager, has highlighted some of the advantages of the new equipment:

“Using fully digital technology, it allows instant viewing of images, and their increased quality has been noted by the Consultant Radiologists who examine and report on the X-rays. The equipment is also lighter and easier to use for the Radiographers, who perform the X-rays.

For the patient, this means a quicker and more pleasant experience, which is helped by the improved décor in the refurbished facilities. Also, very significantly, for some patients it can mean having an examination on the Island rather travelling to the UK.”

The Trustees of the RDCH Welfare Fund rely entirely on the generosity of those who donate or leave bequests, in order to be able to respond to the evolving and changing needs of the Hospital and the services it provides.
