THE High Sheriff of North Yorkshire, Alexandra Holford, has paid a visit to Scarborough Hospital.

Trust board chairman Sir Michael Carlisle and James Hayward, director of facilities, accompanied her on a tour of the hospital where she took in many recent developments including the mammography Unit, A&E, endoscopy, Maple ward and the new intensive care isolation unit, which is due to be completed in January.

The Office of High Sheriff is an independent non-political Royal appointment for a single year.

The origins of the Office date back to Saxon times, when the “Shire Reeve” was responsible to the king for the maintenance of law and order within the shire, or county, and for the collection and return of taxes due to the Crown.
