New ECG Machine Donated to the Lister Ward

A new ECG machine which will help speed up the diagnosis and treatment of heart conditions has been handed over to Broomfield Hospital’s Lister Ward by the Friends at Broomfield Hospital.

Members of the Friends, who raise funds for equipment and facilities for patients and staff at the hospital, are pictured at the presentation on the ward with hospital staff and Nick Alston, who chairs the hospital trust’s Charities Foundation.

Gemma Hughes, Lister Ward sister said: “Previously, we always had to borrow an ECG machine from other wards, which was time consuming and delayed treatment for patients.”

“Having one here on the ward makes it so much easier for us. We use it every day and we are extremely grateful to the Friends at Broomfield for helping us improve the treatment we can give to our patients.”

Nick Alston also thanked the members for their ongoing support, saying: “The generosity and support of the Friends has greatly enhanced patient care across the hospital over the years and I am extremely pleased to be able to thank all the members for another significant contribution, which I know will make a huge difference to our staff and patients.”

“The Friends – Supporting your hospital, supporting you”
