Nidderdale Ward is a 30 bed, multispeciality, female surgery ward. We specialise in gynaecology, gastroenterology, general surgery, and urology.

Byland and Nidderdale ward have restricted visitation to members of the public at present, except when visitors are attending due to the end of life of a patient, a patient needing assistance with feeding, dementia care and compassionate reasons (left to the Nurse in Charge’s discretion).

We tend to have a fast turnover and so work at relatively fast pace.  We are also in the process of developing a ward attender service.

The Ward recently came under new management and has a young and enthusiastic team. We work closely with many consultants and specialist nurses.

“Staff are persistently kind and helpful went out of their way to keep me informed.” – Friends and Family Test Feedback

We want to make you feel as comfortable as possible when you visit our wards, and all our staff aim to adhere to our values of Passionate, Respectful, and Responsible. Find out more information about our vision and values.
