Revamp to extend the life of Ilkley's Coronation Hospital

Bradford Telegraph and Argus: Coronation Hospital Coronation Hospital

A £300,000 revamp of the Coronation Hospital in Ilkley could prolong the life of the hospital by five years, it has been revealed.

Bradford Council’s Health and Social Care Overview and Scrutiny Committee has been told maintenance and improvement work planned by owner NHS Property Services would “give the building another five years”.

Representatives of Airedale Wharfedale and Craven Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG), NHS Property Services, Bradford District Care Trust and Airedale NHS Foundation Trust have assured the public they intend to keep providing services at the Springs Lane hospital in the medium term.

But they are still considering how to provide health and social care in the long term – from another building on the site, or closer to patients’ homes.

Committee chairman, Councillor Mike Gibbons (Con, Ilkley), is confident short-term improvements could open the door for more services to be commissioned on the site in future.
