Richard Lochhead MSP has hailed the application for planning permission for a new MRI scanner at Dr Gray’s Hospital as a big step forward.
Welcoming the news, Mr Lochhead said:
“An MRI scanner for Dr Gray’s is something that the local community and myself have been pushing for, for many years. Having this facility on our doorstep would save many patients from making the long trip to Aberdeen for the scans.
“This significant investment would also be a vote of confidence in Dr Gray’s and would reiterate the importance of the hospital to the delivery of healthcare in the Grampian region.
“I hope that as well as developing the business case for funding for the new scanner, NHS Grampian is also working on plans to ensure we have the workforce we need to deliver this service so we can get it up and running as soon as possible.”
