As part of the Tees Health Review, involving the independent advice of Professor Sir Ara Darzi, it was agreed that Professor Darzi would examine two additional areas to his original terms of reference. One of these areas was the work under way by the Hambleton and Richmondshire Primary Care Trust and South Tees Hospitals National Health Service Trust in relation to the Friarage Hospital.

Professor Darzi will submit his report later this year. No decision regarding the future of the Friarage Hospital has been made. Any proposals which concern changes to current services will be subject to a formal period of consultation.
