What is the Daisy Appeal?
New £4.5m scanning centre sees its official opening
The Daisy Appeal is delighted to announce that the Jack Brignall PET-CT Centre is now officially open.
The £4.5m centre at Castle Hill brings world class diagnostic services for cancer, heart disease and shortly dementia to North and North East Lincolnshire, East Yorkshire and parts of North Yorkshire.
Named after a founder member of the charity, Jack Brignall, the centre was launched on July 14th by former Secretary of State for Health, Sheriff of Hull and Chancellor of the University of Hull, Baroness Virginia Bottomley.
It has been made possible by the tireless work of volunteers who have contributed their time and donated money to turn what started off as a dream into a reality.
The Daisy Appeal exists to serve one overarching function – to create better health outcomes for patients across the region by enabling quicker diagnosis of cancer, heart disease and dementia.
As well as creating the new scanning centre, the charity also funds cutting edge research into the use of radiotracers to diagnose these conditions at the University of Hull.
Now the charity is continuing its work to make this region happier and healthier by raising a further £3.5m to buy a cyclotron – a device which makes the radiotracers – and house it on site at Castle Hill.
