A Lynn history author has donated another £1,000 to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital from the sale of his books to pay for vital equipment to help heart and lung patients.
Bob Booth presented two £500 cheques to respiratory consultant Anna Pawlowicz, left, and cardiology consultant Julia Grapsa from the sales of More Memories of Lynn and King’s Lynn: An Illustrated Street Directory.
Anna Pawlowicz said: “The money Bob previously kindly donated to the Respiratory Department was used to purchase a software for domiciliary sleep study. It is used to diagnose sleep apnea, a condition that makes people stop breathing for a short period while they are asleep.”
It also purchased an AIRO system which helps those patients who require oxygen therapy.
She added: “With his current donation, the Respiratory Department is planning to purchase a spirometer which tests how well a patient’s lungs are working and helps to diagnose and monitor diseases that affect the lungs.”
