The first piece of ground has been broken at West Suffolk Hospital in Bury St Edmunds in preparation for the build of a new state-of-the-art cardiac catheterisation and pacing suite.
Dr Pegah Salashouri, cardiology consultant at WSFT, said: “Currently many of our patients have to go to other hospitals for cardiac services – to have pacemakers fitted or for other treatments or more invasive procedures, which may mean they have to wait for further diagnosis and treatment.”
Tim Leggett, R G Carter Director and General Manager at Thetford says: “R G Carter is delighted to have been given the opportunity to work with the West Suffolk NHS Foundation Trust on this important facility. Our focus is on delivering a successful project which will clearly make a difference to patients, their families and the wider local community.”
