Emergency Department Appeal

Help us to raise £100,000 for resources in our new Emergency Department. ED appeal logo

The aim of this appeal is to raise enough funds for three distraction walls for the children’s assessment and treatment areas, more resources to help patients with dementia who will use the Trust’s Butterfly Room and state-of-the-art equipment to improve care for the thousands of people who will use the department each year including an interactive light system for the children’s waiting area and cardiac monitors for the general assessment areas.

Our new department, which is currently being built is set to take between 10 and 12 months and is set to open its doors in October. It will provide much improved facilities including separate adult and children’s waiting areas, a quiet room for friends and families to use during stressful events and better privacy and dignity for vulnerable older patients and their families and carers. During the past financial year, there were 53,489 people visiting Airedale A&E Department and 5,012 that were aged 5 and under.
