Can you help us?
We would like to raise funds for new equipment for the Thirlestaine Breast Centre at Cobalt House. With your help we are striving to enhance facilities through the purchase of a 3 dimensional mammography machine,
a special breast biopsy device and equipment to undertake mammography with a special dye (contrast medium) which will help to greatly improve patient care and reduce anxiety.
Breast Screening Facilities in Gloucestershire and surrounding counties
Medical charity Cobalt has supported breast cancer services since the screening programme was launched in 1990, almost thirty years ago. The screening unit was initially housed at Linton House. Our vision has been to provide leading edge breast facilities for Gloucestershire in partnership with Gloucestershire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.
Your donations will help to:
Detect breast cancer at an earlier stage
Enable more accurate detections
Make treatment more effective and reduce unnecessary procedures
Advance research into this important area using the latest equipment
Ultimately deliver cost saving for the NHS
Every £1 donated will go towards the new equipment.
Let's provide patients with the best chance of early diagnosis, more effective treatment and ultimately save lives.
