The necessary infrastructure and workforce will need to also be provided and as such, the £1million appeal will be supported by an additional contribution of £1.57 million from the Trust.

The decision to procure and install an additional MRI Scanner was taken due to the shortfall in MRI scanning capacity, with 30 patients a day being scanned between 8am to 8pm, seven days a week. The need to address the shortfall in capacity is essential in order to continue to deliver first-class healthcare and help save more lives within the area of Cheshire.
