This week we were delighted to welcome to our office a long-standing supporter of MedEquip4Kids, Ray Hughes (pictured above with our project co-ordinator Evelyn).  Ray popped in with a cheque for £300 from the Manchester City Supporters Club for which we’re very grateful.

A former RBS employee and and a fantastic supporter of  the charity, Ray has run for us four times in the Manchester 10k both as an individual and as part of an RBS team (pictured left). The funds raised enabled us to provide equipment for hospitals including Stepping Hill in Stockport, where Ray attended a presentation (pictured right).

Thanks so much to Ray and to everyone who contributed to support our local hospitals.

“Infections of the central nervous system need urgent and appropriate treatment. Most laboratory methods can take from 24 to 48 hours for diagnosis of bacterial meningitis and three to seven days for diagnosis of viral meningitis or encephalitis. The new equipment will mean we can get results of these tests in around an hour. We’ll be able to inform the clinicians of a positive result, allowing targeted therapy and reassurance to the patients and families. Just as important is the reporting of negative results, which may enable treatment withdrawal and possibly a shorter hospital stay.”
