Castleberg Hospital re-opening

Work to repair and re-open Castleberg Hospital is nearing completion, with its re-opening anticipated this autumn.

NHS Airedale, Wharfedale and Craven Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) subsequently approved plans to re-open the hospital, subject to major work to repair the building by its owner, NHS Property Services, to return it to the expected standards to support healthcare provision.

Following some unavoidable delays – partly due to the discovery and removal of asbestos, as well as nesting birds in the boiler house roof – work by the contractors is due for completion soon.

When it re-opens, the hospital will continue to have 10 intermediate care beds, providing bed-based intermediate care, otherwise known as ‘step-up and step-down’ care. These beds will allow for short periods of assessment and rehabilitation to enable people to return home. It will also provide short-term nursing care, pain relief and support for some people as they near the end of their life.

The teams providing care and support will include returning and new staff, all of whom are looking forward to providing a friendly, caring and quality service for Craven residents.

Further details will be shared nearer to the time of re-opening.
