South East Clinical Senates

Independent, clinical and strategic advice for health systems in the south east

Review for Airedale, Wharfedale and Craven CCG on the future of Castleberg Hospital

The review focussed on the Castleberg Community Hospital, a 10 bed intermediate facility which had experienced temporary closures for patient safety reasons due structural problems with the building. It is sited in a rural community which holds it in high regard and would not wish to lose it. The Senate was asked to provide an independent clinical perspective on the 3 options for the future of the Hospital and the services provided within that facility.
