About the Friarage

Ambulances at Friarage Hospital

The Friarage is one of the smallest district general hospitals in the country, but forms an essential part of South Tees Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, providing an important and much-loved health service for the local community.

The trust is committed to delivering as many services as possible from the Northallerton site with recent developments including the introduction of lung cancer surgery, the opening of our MRI Scanner and the opening of The Sir Robert Ogden Macmillan Centre.

Living here

North Yorkshire

Friarage Hospital is within easy reach of Teesside from the North via the A19 or York is 50 minutes south. There’s also great train links to Northallerton centre which is a traditional market town.

North Yorkshire is England’s largest county with a wide diversity of scenery, attractions, historic towns and villages. It covers some of the most remote, rural areas in the country and access to services in these areas is a particular challenge.

Newcomers may be pleasantly surprised, not just at the idyllic locations in which you can live, but also at the variety of property available, from beautiful barn conversions and stone cottages to seafront and harbourside apartments.
