Funds raised towards this project will buy an additional Bronchoscope which enables the respiratory departments in Winchester and Basingstoke to develop the service provided for lung cancer patients within the area. A bronchoscope enables medical professionals to look at the inside of the airways in the lungs to look for any abnormalities and to take biopsies to test. This will allow them to diagnose even the most difficult cancer cases and improve patient waiting times. Sadly there is a higher than national average prevalence of lung cancer diagnosis in the Winchester area and this piece of equipment will be vital to the hospital providing the most timely and effective treatment for those on the waiting lists which have built up over the pandemic.
