A cancer detection and treatment charity has donated £20,000 of equipment to Pilgrim Hospital.

The Detection of Cancer and Treatment Equipment Fund (DOCATEF), has given the urology department two video flexible urethroscopes – which help in the diagnosis of bladder cancer.

Consultant urologist Nazeer Dahar said: “DOCATEF has been a long term supporter of the urology service at Pilgrim.

“Their support and equipment donations are high cost and high tech and have benefitted thousands of patient, particularly with early diagnosis and treatment of urological cancer disease.”

The charity has also donated £7,500 to the oncology ward for equipment to help with chemotherapy.
