We have donated over £2,000 towards the purchase of a portable ultrasound scanner and trolley which will be used by the Renal Unit at St Bernard’s Hospital in Gibraltar to provide better treatment and avoid more stressful procedures for dialysis patients.

The donation supports the efforts of the Gibraltar Rotary Club, who have raised the remaining amount required to purchase the scanner through community fundraising initiatives such as Zoom Quiz nights, auctions and an afternoon tea, as well as donations from members of the public and Kidney Care Gibraltar. Consultant Dr Simon Lines, head of St Bernard’s Renal Unit explained that “the improved treatment provided by the scanner will mean fewer distressing procedures, which not only impacts on patient comfort but also on their emotional and mental wellbeing.”
