Staff at hospitals across Harrogate, Craven and Wharfedale may be rushed off their feet, but they've still found time to put up some Christmas decorations.

They want to make sure that everyone who needs treatment over the festive season gets a warm welcome.

In Harrogate, there has even been a Christmas lights switch-on and carol singing.
