Radiology TeamIn 2016, the Microwave Ablation Appeal raised £25,000 for a new Microwave Ablation Machine. We're so grateful for the generosity of our supporters, this couldn't have happened without people like you.


Microwave Ablation technology has pin-point accuracy to treat certain types of cancer tumours. It is often a patient’s only option to continue their cancer treatment, especially if they have already endured surgery and chemo or radiation therapy. The treatment is minimally invasive, so no surgery, no long stay in hospital and the chance of a cure. 

We’re absolutely delighted, the machine will make a huge difference to our patients as we’ll be able to treat certain tumours without the need to conduct open surgery. It’s amazing that patients are able to be back home the next day rather than spending a week in hospital. Thank you so much to everyone who donated towards this crucial piece of equipment.

The possibility of a cure for someone with cancer is an amazing gift to give. It warms our hearts to know that patients like John (below) will be treated by this specialist technology and have their cancer tumours destroyed. Thank you so much for helping to provide this life saving equipment!  

Meet John, he's received microwave ablation treatment

John, pictured with his wife Ann, was recently given the all clear after being treated with the new microwave ablation machine for his liver cancer:

John and his wife AnnNone of us know when we might end up in hospital. All we can wish for, if we do, is that the doctors have every possible method of helping us. This machine helped me and I want it to help many others like me. It really is remarkable: 27 hours in hospital, no side effects to speak of, and a great result!

Please continue to help treat patients like John

Every time a patient is treated by this potentially life-saving equipment, a new probe is required. Each new probe costs £1,000.

Please could you help continue to provide this treatment by giving a gift of £40 today?  We know it will help to save lives. Thank you.
