"Airedale - Orthopaedics Dept."

About: Airedale General Hospital

I was hospitalized between July 1st and 8th as a result of a bad fall while walking in the Dales. This necessitated an operation on my leg. I would like to express my sincere gratitude and admiration for the standard of care I received at Airedale. As visitor to the area from Manchester I did not know anything about the hospital. However, from the moment I was admitted to A&E I had a good feeling. Everyone from the ambulance crew, doctors, nurses, porters and ancillary staff were invariably, helpful and cheerful. In particular I would like thank orthopaedics administration for arranging accommodation for my wife within the hospital while I was there. Since then I have been unfailing ambassador for Airedale to whomever I recount my experience .
