Airedale NHS Foundation Trust is an award winning hospital and community services NHS trust, providing high quality, personalised healthcare for our patients.
Our expert, committed staff provide a full range of emergency, planned and specialist care including high dependency and intensive care, cancer care, day case surgery, stroke and rehabilitation, maternity and paediatrics, older people’s and community services for a population of over 200,000 people from a widespread area covering West and North Yorkshire and East Lancashire.
We were named as one of only eight trusts to improve its weekend mortality rates in the Dr Foster Good Hospital Guide in 2013 and our patients continually score us highly in national surveys.
We want our local community to trust us to always provide 'Right Care'. We want patients to be in control of their health and care and we want to be able to respond to their needs in a way that best suits them, when it is safe to do so. By putting patients at the heart of everything we do, we enable them to access compassionate, safe care, which helps keep them active and retains their dignity.
In 'Right Care', patients have help to navigate them through a complex system by wrapping care around people rather than organisations and increasing the availability of care at home or closer to home.
