The chief of surgery for Western Sussex Hospitals Foundation Trust will take part in one of the world’s most unusual long distance runs.

Paul Carter will take part in the 26-mile Medoc Marathon, in Bordeaux, France.

The vineyard-to-vineyard run, which is famous as runners stop for glasses of wine en route, takes place on September 12

The consultant urological surgeon will raise money towards funding new equipment for diagnosing prostate cancer.

All the cash donated will be used to help buy prostate template biopsy equipment which will improve the speed and accuracy of diagnosing the cancer.

The equipment costs almost £60,000 and enables urologists to investigate the whole prostate gland giving a much more accurate diagnosis.

Mr Carter said: ‘The prostate template biopsy equipment will have a huge impact on the lives of the men we see in clinic.’
