UPDATE – 23 April 2018

Community Care Services in Craven – consultation decision to be made at Governing Body meeting

The decision on the future of community care services in Craven, including Castleberg Hospital, will be taken at a meeting of Airedale, Wharfedale and Craven CCG’s governing body held in public in Settle next month.

The meeting will take place on Tuesday 8 May 2018 at 1.15pm at St John’s Church and Hall, Church Street, Settle, BD24 9RA.

The governing bodies of NHS Airedale, Wharfedale and Craven, NHS Bradford City and NHS Bradford Districts CCGs will meet as a ‘committee in common’, with the Bradford City and Bradford Districts governing bodies joining the meeting later in the afternoon to discuss other items on the agenda.

The papers for the meeting will be made available at the first opportunity after the pre-election period ends (often referred to as ‘purdah’) on NHS Airedale, Wharfedale and Craven CCGs’ website on Friday 4 May.

Papers for the meeting will be available here: http://bradfordccg.moderngov.co.uk/ieListMeetings.aspx?CommitteeId=181

Whilst the meeting is not a public meeting, members of the public are invited to submit questions in advance. The CCG is urging those wishing to ask a question to read through the meeting papers ahead of doing so, to ensure the information they would like is not already covered.

Questions can be submitted in writing by email to stacey.waterworth@bradford.nhs.uk or by post to Stacey Waterworth, Governance and Corporate Manager, NHS Bradford District and Craven CCGs, Douglas Mill, Bowling Old Lane, Bradford, BD5 7JR by 8am on Monday 7 May 2018.

The meeting will also be filmed and a video shared on the CCGs’ website after the event.

ENDS – PRNo.29-2018A

Notes to editors

Castleberg Hospital was temporarily closed in April 2017 due to safety concerns following ongoing issues with the power supply, heating and drainage at the ten-bed Giggleswick site.

The Community Care Services in Craven consultation ran from 14 November 2017 to 27 February 2018.
