A NEW biomechanics suite which is set to further improve podiatry care for patients has opened at Kendray Hospital.

The suite helps the podiatry team to diagnose and manage problems of the foot and lower limb.

It used to be based in Silkstone, but has moved to Kendray as part of an investment in local services to improve diagnosis and treatment for patients.

The new home has been named the Burston Suite, in recognition of a member of the team's expertise and contribution to this area of care.
