AN £85,000 appeal to buy optical equipment at Tetbury Hospital has been set up by a charity that works to support it.

The Friends of Tetbury Hospital wants to buy the two pieces of equipment so the hospital can provide ophthalmic care that enables the diagnosis of a range of eye-related problems, including cataracts, glaucoma, diabetic eye and retinal diseases.

A spokesman for the Friends said: “The need for the new equipment is driven by the high demand in the area due to an ageing population together with long waiting times at other hospitals.”

To donate or fundraise for the appeal, contact Nicky Gordon on 07734 968749.
