One and a half millions pounds is being spent on state-of-the-art medical equipment for King George Hospital.

Barking, Havering and Redbridge University Hospitals NHS Trust which runs the Goodmayes site in Barley Lane, has used £1million of the cash to upgrade ventilators, heart monitors and ultrasound machines.

Director of Estates Jackie Nugent said: “We are committed to ensuring that our patients benefit from the very best facilities and equipment, and continue to invest in front line care.”

The cash has also been used to fund operating microscopes, bladder scanners, oxygen analysers, and ultrasound for urology and nerve stimulators.

The remaining £500,000 will be spent over the next six months.
