Council of Governors

Airedale Hospital was authorised as an NHS Foundation Trust, with effect from 1 June 2010.

Why is being an NHS Foundation Trust good for Airedale Hospital?

  • We have much more freedom to make sure our future plans best meet the unique needs of our local community
  • We can retain any extra money we generate to invest in new services, and can borrow money to support these investments
  • We are more accountable and answerable to local people through membership and our new Council of Governors

Further details of the Trust’s Terms of Authorisation and other documents can be found on the NHS Improvement website.
