Cobalt is a medical charity helping people affected by cancer, dementia and other conditions. We believe everyone should have access to the best medical imaging for their diagnosis. We invest in equipment, research and education to help this happen.
Each year we provide diagnostic imaging for over 65,000 patients at Cobalt Imaging Centre in Cheltenham, our ITM Imaging Centre in Birmingham and with our fleet of six mobile MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) scanners that travel throughout the UK.
As well as cancer, our equipment is able to assist in the detection of illnesses such as dementia including Alzheimer’s.
We offer free training and education courses on a local, national and international basis for doctors and healthcare professionals, ensuring our experience and research work is widely shared. We also visit local schools, companies and organisations delivering free cancer prevention and health education talks.
Donations we receive help fund scanning and diagnosis, research, prevention, specialised nursing posts and cancer facilities for local people.
By leaving a gift in your Will to Cobalt you can help ensure we are here for those that need to use our services in the future.
