Rochester and Elmore District Health Services’ day procedure unit will receive new gynaecological equipment thanks to the Rochester Art Exhibition.
The exhibition committee donated $6700 of its profits which will go towards five trays of instruments for minor procedures.
Acting nurse unit manager for acute services Meredith Hodder said the unit previously borrowed instruments from neighbouring practices.
She said even though the instruments were sterile upon reaching the unit they had to be sterilised again, which took time.
‘‘It will be quicker and reduce the waiting time,’’ she said.
Rochester Art Exhibition committee president Judy Anderson said she was pleased the group could buy something useful for the community.
