In the light of the recent Government announcements, we have taken the decision to suspend visiting times across all our wards at the Airedale Centre for Mental Health with immediate effect.
This is to help us to continue to protect our service users, our staff and our wider communities and to limit the spread of COVID-19 coronavirus.
The exception to this is if a service user is receiving end-of-life care. We understand that this will be upsetting for service users and their families but we are looking at alternative arrangements such as telephone calls for you to keep in touch with your loved ones during this time.

It provides 24-hour inpatient care by skilled, qualified and experienced nursing staff, doctors and other professionals who continually assess patients with mental health problems.
