Big Red Heart Appeal
Over the next 18 months to 2 years, we at the GHDC are looking to raise in excess of £1.5 million to develop the Cardiac Services at the Diana, Princess of Wales Hospital in Grimsby.
Here is a view of some of the improvements we would like to develop. Right now it`s a dream but with your help and support we will make it happen.
Right now our biggest aim is to create a state of the art cath lab, including a brand new gamma camera.
But what does a gamma camera do?
A gamma camera is a camera which traces radiation. It works by injecting the patient with a harmless tracer which emits gamma radiation. The camera is then used to pick up this radiation and the images are used to identify abnormalities in the heart valves. Using these images, doctors can plan a course of treatment, or plan surgery to correct heart valve defects. This would be a huge benefit to the hospital, but it can only be achieved with your help - So get involved!
