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 scanners, which significantly reduce discomfort through the more accurate use of an anaesthetic technique called nerve blocking, have been provided thanks to a £42,000 investment from the Friends of the Friarage.
