Early diagnosis and speedy treatment of illness requires the latest modern equipment. The MAST Appeal was started in 1990 with the objective of relieving sickness and protecting the health of the people of Macclesfield and its surrounding area. The people of East Cheshire have raised the magnificent sum of over £2million, which enabled MAST to buy a CT and MRI scanner and vital medical equipment.
MAST’s objective as a charity is “The relief of sickness and protection of health of people of Macclesfield and its surrounding area by providing or assisting in the provision and maintenance of medical equipment and facilities for patient care and medical treatment”.
MAST was established as an independent charity 17 years ago by a patient to raise money for the hospital’s first CT Scanner. Since then the charity has raised well over £2,000,000 to provide numerous items for the benefit of patients. Without MAST many hospital departments would not have this vitally needed new equipment which it was not possible to provide from the NHS funding budget.
