A doctors surgery in St Ives is in a bid to raise funds to buy life changing equipment.
The Old Exchange Surgery, in East Street, held a coffee and cake day on September 21 and raised £209.68 towards purchasing an electro cardiogram machine, which measures the heart rhythm.
The machine is expected to cost up to £2,500.
Practice manager, Samantha Jones said: “If we are able to offer this service to our patients, rather than referring them, they will not need to travel and will receive their results quicker.”
This is the first of a number of events which have been organised to raise funds.
