Wensleydale

Wensleydale Ward is a 28 bed, mixed, orthopaedic, elective ward that caters for patients who require joint replacement surgery, orthopaedic procedures and investigations.

Patients are assessed in the Pre-Operative Assessment and Admissions Unit and reviewed in a pre-admission education group prior to their planned admission. Wensleydale Ward also receives some direct admissions from the Emergency Department following injury or trauma.

We provide a 24 hour emergency access helpline for patients who require advice following discharge. If you need to access this service, please call 01423 553641 or 01423 553642.

Orthopaedic clinics are held Monday to Thursday 8.30am-4.30pm and Friday 8.30am-12.30pm. If you have a question regarding the clinics, please call 01423 553440.

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.

We tend to have a fast turnover and so work at relatively fast pace. The Early Pregnancy Unit can be found on Nidderdale Ward. 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.
