Community care

    As well as providing services based at Airedale Hospital, we also provide services in a number of community settings. 

    Airedale and Craven Collaborative Care Team

    The Airedale and Craven collaborative care team (CCT) provide intermediate care to patients in the Airedale, Wharfedale and Craven regions to patients in their own homes.

    The aim of CCT is to prevent unnecessary hospital admission where this is safe and appropriate, and to facilitate early discharge from hospital.

    Our mission is to provide an intermediate care service that is responsive to the needs of our service users and that delivers a high quality health service based on the Airedale NHS Foundation Trust core vision and values.

    We will make the patient the centre of everything we do and ensure that every contact counts.

    The CCT is multi-disciplinary community team and is made up of:

    • Advanced nurse practitioners

    • Mental health nurses

    • Social workers

    • Occupational therapists

    • Physiotherapists

    • Registered general nurses

    • Community support workers

    • Carers’ support
