Intermediate Care Team Leader (Castleberg)
Team Leader, Harden Ward, Castleberg Hospital
Area of Responsibility
I am responsible for the management of a 10 bedded Intermediate Care Bed Based Unit.
State Registered Trained Nurse (Adult). I am the Team Leader at Castleberg Hospital in Settle and have been in this post since the hospital re-opened in October 2019. Castleberg Hospital is a 10 bedded Intermediate Care inpatient unit. I have been a qualified nurse for 35 years, working within Airedale NHS Foundation Trust from 1999 to present day. My career pathway took me from a Band 5 Staff Nurse working on Care of the Elderly Ward to a Band 7 Senior Sister on the Stroke Unit in the hospital. In 2016 I changed my work environment and started working with the Collaborative Care Teams in the Community. Prior to Castleberg Hospital re-opening I was given the opportunity to work with other community colleagues in the redevelopment of the inpatient service on Harden Ward and the successful recruitment of staff.
