Around Twelve thousand patients a year will benefit from a new CT scanner at Salisbury District Hospital. It's cost £650,000 which was raised through the Stars Appeal campaign. It's hoped the scanner will help reduce waiting times for CT scans and enable medical staff to make quicker diagnoses. The new CT scanner will have the very latest technology, meaning some patients will avoid having minor surgery, with all its possible side effects. Patients will no longer need to travel to other hospitals for scans. They will be able to get the CT Scan they need at Salisbury, at any time of day or night, even if one scanner is busy or undergoing essential maintenance.
