PEOPLE with pulmonary problems can now be tested on a new respiratory machine at Romsey Hospital.

The £16,000 piece of equipment has been paid for by the hospital’s League of Friends and cash left over from the £1million Romsey Hospital Millennium Appeal.

Spokesman for the League of Friends and the Appeal Fund Jean Denham said the machine and the new fortnightly pulmonary clinic at the Winchester Hill hospital will make a big difference to people with respiratory problems.
