Today marks the deadline for the findings of a report into the future of consultant-led maternity services at the Friarage Hospital to be handed to the Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt.

The NHS is planning to reduce services at the Friarage in Northallerton, claiming that they are unsustainable.

However, supporters of the unit hope that the findings of the report will lead to a full comprehensive review of the consultant-led maternity services at the hospital.
