Royal Shrewsbury Hospital given prostate cancer scanner

Campaigners in Shropshire have raised £11,000 for a new scanner to detect prostate cancer.

The ultrasound machine was donated by the Shropshire Prostate Cancer Support Group to the Shrewsbury and Telford Hospital NHS Trust.

Andy Elves, a consultant urologist from the trust, said: "Without the support it is unlikely we would have been able to buy this."

The machine is being used at the Royal Shrewsbury Hospital.

More than 250 men in the area are diagnosed with prostate cancer each year, the trust said.
