Although the scanner has been installed we need to stress to people we are still fundraising, as they think it has finished we are short of £180,000.
To reach our target fundraising by South Tees Hospitals Charity is still ongoing for The Friarage MRI scanner project.
Currently, South Tees Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust carries out more than 27,000 scans every year at James Cook – 6,500 of which are for patients living in Hambleton and Richmondshire.
As well as providing the crucial diagnostic test for numerous conditions to more people closer to their homes, the new MRI scanner will have the knock-on effect of reducing waiting times at The James Cook University Hospital in Middlesbrough.
“A massive “thank you” has to go to every single person who has made a donation to the appeal to date, whether small change of £1 or £2, or thousands generated from organising an elaborate event.
“Every single penny has enabled us to bring this state-of-the-art scanner to The Friarage, helping to improve care for thousands of patients across the South Tees patch for years to come.”
“The hard work and dedication that the local community has committed has paid dividends.
