Chestnut Appeal donates £125,000 to RD&E for robotic surgery
Regional prostate cancer support charity, the Chestnut Appeal, presented a cheque to the hospital to help with the cost of robotic surgery equipment. The presentation took place during the demonstration day where members of staff and the public could learn more about the surgical robot (see story on our news page).
The £2.5 million state-of-the-art robotic equipment is being used in the RD&E to carry out complex surgery for prostate cancer.
Another cheque, for £2,500, was presented to the North and East Devon Prostate Support Association from Roger Dawe, on behalf of the Norman Family Charitable Trust.
