New MRI scanner opens thanks to fundraisers

New MRI scanner opens thanks to fundraisers

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. This month, the radiology team scanned their first patients on the diagnostic equipment which, when fully operational, will treat 22 patients a day, seven days a week.

Funds to the tune of over £1,000!

When retired engineer David Cookson decided to support the Friarage MRI Scanner Appeal he knew exactly what would hit the right note! The grandad-of-three spent the winter in his garage repairing musical instruments, restoring everything from ukuleles to mandolins and then selling them online. And his efforts paid off, with sales raising £1,100 for the appeal.
