A new magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scanner is now up and running at the Friarage Hospital – thanks to the phenomenal support of the people of North Yorkshire. But still in need of funds to reach the original £2m mark.
The Friarage Hospital is looking to have its own MRI scanner and has recently launched an appeal for funds. For more information about the appeal, visit this LINK for more information.
The Friarage MRI Scanner Appeal is vitally important as it will benefit the population across the whole of the region. Over the course of its lifetime the scanner will undertake over 70,000 scans. It will diagnose in the region of 10,000 incidences of cancer and help diagnose neurological condition such as Parkinson's and dementia. Importantly, the MRI Scanner will also
- Cut waiting times leading to faster diagnosis and treatment.
- Enable us to remain at the forefront of cancer case in the country by providing much needed capacity.
- Help the growing number of patients across North Yorkshire have a local service which will no longer see them having to travel considerable distances to either Middlesbrough or Darlington to receive scans.
- Enable important medical research to be undertaken within the trust.
