Patients attending the pain management at Pilgrim Hospital hospital, in Boston, can now benefit from a new machine thanks to a £15,000 donation.

The Boston League of Hospital Friends purchased the equipment - which uses radio frequencies to deliver heat treatment helping to sooth inflamed nerves in patients.

The group regularly fundraise and donate items to Pilgrim.

Clinical nurse specialist in pain management, Tracey Potter, said “We are extremely pleased to receive the kind donation from the league of friends.
