Skipton MP welcomes decision to keep Castleberg Hospital open

Tuesday’s meeting, attended by many residents and supporters of the hospital, heard CCG governors discuss the future of community care services in Craven. It followed a public consultation which took place from November to February this year.

Dr James Thomas, GP and clinical chairman at NHS Airedale, Wharfedale and Craven CCG said: “The governing body carefully considered the views expressed in the public consultation, the rural geography of the local area, the safety of patients, the high quality of care required and the recommendation of the CCG’s Clinical Executive Group.The decision was taken to support the recommendation of the CCG’s Clinical Executive Group which was to continue to provide inpatient care in the community and repair and restore Castleberg Hospital but in a redesigned way that will be determined with the involvement of the local community."

He added: “This is an exciting opportunity that will see services evolve from what has gone before, moving towards a more holistic approach that will care for both the physical and mental wellbeing of the community. The future model of care that will be provided throughout Craven will aim to integrate services closer to patients’ homes and will include Castleberg Hospital acting as a community-based facility, with the option to provide a broader range of support services.”
