Keighley woman thanks staff at Airedale Hospital for care she received

A Keighley woman has thanked staff at Airedale Hospital for the care she received following an operation.
Margaret Wild, originally from Glusburn, has made a donation to the ward that looked after her.
She was treated last month on ward 18, a specialist orthopaedic unit at the hospital.
Margaret said: “I can’t fault my stay at Airedale, it didn’t even feel like being in hospital. I could have been in a five-star hotel.
“Everyone, from the bottom to the top, was faultless.”
She repaid the staff’s dedication by buying tea, coffee, biscuits and clocks for the ward, as well as crockery and cutlery to help the unit feel even more like a home from home.
Angela McGarry, sister on ward 18, said: “It’s lovely to have a patient who was so happy with her time here.
“We always strive to provide the best care we can, so it’s lovely to hear it straight from a patient. We’d like to thank Margaret for her generous donation. The tea will certainly keep us going for a while!”
The specialist orthopaedic ward opened in October, and includes seven side rooms, a treatment room, physiotherapy area, day room, dining room and education facility.
The orthopaedic team uses an enhanced recovery programme for hip and knee replacements, allowing patients to start moving safely and comfortably a few hours after their operation.
