The family of a Great Yarmouth man who received treatment at the James Paget have raised more than £3500 to buy a special piece of equipment to help other patients.
John Taylor passed away in August last year after receiving treatment at the hospital’s Sandra Chapman Centre and Ward 17 over a 10 month period.
His family raised £3,607 in his memory to purchase a device which uses ultrasound to locate veins in the arm, to assist with cannulisation.
Mr Taylor’s wife Margaret, daughter Michelle Trembling and grand-daughter Danielle Cannon visited the centre earlier today to present staff with a cheque.
The money was raised through a fund-raising event and a Just Giving page as well as donations from local businesses and organisations including John Plummer dentists in Great Yarmouth, and St Mary’s Lodge, also of Great Yarmouth.
