Twenty patients and league members celebrated harvest at the multi faith centre in the hospital.
Patients were brought to the service in beds and wheelchairs by league members and children from local schools, working towards their duke of Edinburgh awards.

Anglesey Ward thank League of Friends for donation of Bladder Scanner

Dear League of Friends,

We would like to thank you for your very kind donation of the Bladder Scanner for Anglesey and Gowers Ward.

This has proven to be a valuable piece of equipment to both Patients and staff of both wards.

The Bladder Scanner measures how much urine there is in the bladder. It is a painless procedure where gel is applied to the skin and a probe is gently pressed against the bladder area. This gives an accurate reading of the amount of urine in the bladder and indicates whether the patient needs further treatment or not, especially if they are having difficulty in passing urine. This will give us further insight into whether they need a urinary catheter inserted or a referral for further investigation.

May we also thank you for the continued support that you given to the hospital, it is very much appreciated.

Yours sincerely

Sister Tracey Kowalski

Anglesey Ward
