  • Fight for the Friary

    Fears have been raised for the future of community hospitals across North Yorkshire, including our Friary Hospital here in Richmond. Budget pressures on the NHS have led to a wave of rural hospital closures and, as a result, a reduction in local available healthcare services.

    Concerns that Richmond Friary may be earmarked for future closure intensified following a meeting between Councillors and Hambleton Richmondshire and Whitby CCG. The local Trust says that no decision has been made. That may be so, but the pattern of closing small rural hospitals is clear. As the Nuffield Trust recently reported, rural hospitals are unfairly funded and need to be better compensated for the extra costs of supporting rural areas.

    Now is the time to make our voice heard. Let’s send a clear message from the people of Richmondshire to show how important The Friary is to the area.

    Sign our petition now and join our fight to keep open the Friary Hospital for future generations.
