Generous donations to Hywel Dda Health Charities enable purchase of new eye scanner for Glangwili Hospital

THANKS to generous donations to Hywel Dda Health Charities, the official charity of Hywel Dda University Health Board, a new eye scanner worth £14,250 has been purchased for Glangwili Hospital.

The new scanner is used to take eye measurements prior to surgery to ensure the accuracy of lenses and implants.

The equipment will deliver an enhanced level of service for patients during pre-assessment for operations such as cataract surgery, especially those who are frail and less mobile.

Senior Sister Casey Griffiths said: “We are so grateful that charitable donations have enabled us to purchase the new scanner.

“The Tysul Eye Unit is of real benefit to patients who are less mobile – for example, those who have neck and back problems – as they may find it difficult to use the standard seated equipment within the unit.

“The new scanner will help us run pre-assessment clinics as effectively as possible and provide an optimum outcome for patients.”

Nicola Llewelyn, Head of Hywel Dda Health Charities, the official charity of Hywel Dda University Health Board, said: “The support of our local communities enables us to provide services over and above what the NHS can provide in the three counties of Hywel Dda and we are extremely grateful for every donation we receive.”
