PDT in Action
Dorset County Hospital
Dermatology nurses Laura Male and Hazel Thomas with one of four Ambulight units donated by PDT For Cancer Cure on 15th March 2016.
Two more units are to follow shortly.
Singleton Hospital, Swansea
"These units will make it much more convenient and less painful for our patients to have PDT for treatment of skin cancers and pre-cancerous skin lesions, which is the most common reason for referral to hospital dermatology departments. It will also reduce the number of times patients have to visit hospital. It will help to improve the quality of our service to these patients with more choice of treatment available, and because of the increase in numbers of skin cancers due to sun exposure and an ageing population, it will help us to cope with the increasing demand on our service." Dr Sharon Blackford FRCP, Consultant Dermatologist
"We are excited to be trialling this new piece of equipment that will give the patient more comfort whilst receiving the Photodynamic therapy and more user friendly, as the Ambulight machine is portable, it will mean less time within the hospital setting for patients, and hopefully more patients will be able to be seen in shorter time frame." Carla Thomas, Dermatology Clinical Nurse
