I paid a visit to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital this week to find out more on the need for more Chemotherapy Chairs to treat paitents with cancer.
Around 1500 new cancer patients are treated at The Queen Elizabeth Hospital King’s Lynn every year. Many of these patients have chemotherapy treatment which is carried out in our specialist unit.
The Chemotherapy Room currently has eight special ‘chemo’ chairs, from where we treat 25 patients every day. Cancer treatment services in King’s Lynn are recognised nationally as giving patients a ‘Gold Standard’ level for treatment.
We are currently appealing for funds to allow us to purchase two additional chemo chairs. These are the specialist treatment stations from where chemotherapy is administered. Each chair costs £750, which means we need to raise £1500. Having two additional chairs will allow us to treat a further six patients every day.
Please help us to help others. Cancer recovery success rates are improving all the time. Your donation will be gratefully received and used exclusively for the benefit of patients with cancer.
