A request was received from the Emergency Department within Accident and Emergency to purchase a DC70 Ultrasound machine costing £20,898.55. The linear probe for the current machine had broken down and was clinically unsafe to use. The objective would be to enhance the quality of patient care through rapid diagnosis and treatment. The plan is in line with national development of basic ultrasound skills to appropriately trained staff. Patients are the primary benefactors. Time to diagnosis is known to be reduced.
