Welcome to the Friarage Hospital

Since 2002, the Friarage Hospital has been – and continues to be – an essential part of our organisation and an important point of delivery for the community. It is one of the smallest district general hospitals in the country.

Developments such as introducing lung cancer surgery, the opening of our MRI Scanner and the opening of The Sir Robert Ogden Macmillan Centre, show our commitment to delivering as many services as possible from our Northallerton site.

Over £40million has been invested in the hospital over the past 15 years by the trust, with support from NHS Hambleton, Richmondshire and Whitby CCG and the Friends of the Friarage.

The Governing Body of North Yorkshire Clinical Commissioning Group has made a decision on the future of urgent and emergency care at the Friarage Hospital in Northallerton. Following a temporary closure of the accident and emergency department in March 2019 due to there being insufficient staffing to deliver a safe service to patients, the CCG opened a formal consultation with the local population on 13 September 2019.

Kindness calls are helping people who are affected by health issues, isolated, lonely or just want to talk during the COVID-19 pandemic. The new telephone service, which has been launched by the Trinity Holistic Centre, offers regular 30 minute phone calls from an experienced team of therapists to provide a listening ear, practical advice and information on local services.
