About: Airedale General Hospital

Anything else?

My 82 year old mum broke her knee in a fall in Skipton while on a day trip from Southport Merseyside. My mums stay in hospital was particularly difficult because she was so far away from her home and I live in Brighton! Her stay was made easier through the excellent treatment, care, concern, professionalism and friendliness that she received from the ambulance staff, A and E staff and all the staff on wards 9 and 10 during her 2 week stay at Airdale before being transferred to her local hospital. The ward staff were friendly and helpful each time I phoned for updates about my poor mum. You are all fabulous! Thank you all so much.

Being far away from home can be very frightening in such circumstances and we re pleased your Mum's stay at Airedale was a positive one. Thank you for sharing this experience.
