Castleberg Hospital, Giggleswick - consultation events

Local people are being invited to have their say on how they want to be involved in helping to decide the future of Castleberg Hospital and its services, with a series of drop-in sessions in August and September.

The hospital had 10 beds on its Harden Ward, providing intermediate care, and some end-of-life and palliative care services to people living in Craven. 

Following ongoing issues with the power supply, heating and drainage issues Airedale NHS Foundation Trust - which runs services at the hospital - was no longer confident that the building was safe for inpatient care, or for the health and well-being of its staff.  As a result, inpatient services were temporarily withdrawn on 13 April 2017.

 NHS Airedale, Wharfedale and Craven Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) is holding a number of drop-in sessions in Craven during August and September to work with local people, service users and other stakeholders to help design future services. The drop-in sessions will be held on the following dates:
