Northallerton to Bishop AucklandThe CCG consultation team are in Northallerton today.

At present 23% of the service users come from Northallerton so closing the wards will impact almost 1 in 4 of the most local patients and their relatives.

The NHS Choices recommended journey to visit a relative in Auckland Park will involve a 1 hour 15 minute journey. If a relative wants to visit for both the afternoon and evening sessions there wouldn’t be time to return home so they would need to wait an hour and half in Bishop Auckland – not so bad in fine weather but not great in winter.
