Airedale Hospital

Airedale NHS Foundation Trust is an award-winning NHS hospital and community services trust providing high quality, personalised, acute, elective, specialist and community care for a population of over 200,000 people from a widespread area covering 700 square miles within Yorkshire and Lancashire. Our catchment population stretches as far as the Yorkshire Dales and the National Park in North Yorkshire, reaching areas of North Bradford and Guiseley in West Yorkshire and extending into Colne and Pendle in the East of Lancashire.


Our local population is very supportive of the Trust and our level of community engagement is a testament to this. Our communities and location strongly shape the priorities of the Trust.


We employ over 3,000 staff and have over 350 committed volunteers. On an annual basis we treat over 32,000 Inpatients, 31,000 Non-Elective patients and 155,000 Outpatients. Our Emergency Department sees approximately 70,000 patients and over 2,000 babies are born at Airedale Hospital each year.

We provide services from our main hospital site, Airedale Hospital, and at other locations across the community – such as Castleberg Hospital near Settle, Coronation Hospital in Ilkley and Skipton Hospital.
