Alan Dickens

The Alan Dickens MRI Unit

Wangaratta Hospital

The North East Branch of the Victoria Police Blue Ribbon donated funds to North East Health Wangaratta to assist with the supply and installation of a Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) Unit at Wangaratta Hospital. MRI provides a valuable diagnostic tool for doctors leading to more timely treatment for patients across a wide range of medical conditions and injuries. There is a huge benefit for the local community by having such a facility within their local public health system and the Foundation is extremely proud to be part of this project.

This unit was dedicated as a Police Memorial to honour Inspector Alan Geoffrey Dickens (15108) who died in the line of duty from injuries received in a motor vehicle collision in August 1989.
