Response from Friarage Hospital Site

Thank you for your feedback regarding your baby son and the care and treatment he has received during his stay on the Children's Ward at the Friarage Hospital, Northallerton. It is always pleasing to receive positive feedback and I appreciate you taking the time to contact the Trust. I shall ensure your kind comments are forwarded to the staff involved in your son's care.

It may interest you to know the trust runs a ‘Thank You Award’ scheme where NHS colleagues, patients and relatives can nominate staff in recognition of their work. These are presented throughout the year for acts above the call of duty or where staff have shown exceptional kindness towards patients and their relatives please contact the Chairman’s office on 01642 854151 or email deborah.jenkins@stees.nhs.uk

We also welcome nominations for the Trust’s annual ‘Nightingale Awards’ which, once a year, recognise the important contribution nursing and midwifery make to patients and their families at The James Cook University Hospital or the Friarage Hospital on a day-to-day basis.
