The Rotary Club of Gibraltar and Kidney Care Gibraltar have donated an A5 ultrasound scanner to the GHA’s Nephrology Department.
Clinical Director for Medicine and Consultant Nephrologist Dr Simon Lines said the scanner will help make the cannulation access easier and quicker, resulting in a better prognosis for patients with difficult access.
Dr Lines said the portable ultrasound scanner will transform care for patients with difficult fistulas, minimising discomfort and trauma.
President Jane Hart said: "We are very pleased to have been able to raise over £7000 in a matter of a few months and we can only thank everyone who donated to this project and who made it possible".
