DURING the recent bank holiday I went to the accident and emergency department at Airedale Hospital with awful leg pain.

I was greeted by a friendly receptionist and directed towards the minor injury clinic. I saw the triage nurse, the doctor, had an X-ray, saw the doctor again and was given my tablets, all within under two hours.

I know it’s the norm to knock hospitals and not to praise them, but I’m not going down that road.

I’m so pleased I live in the Craven area for lots of reasons, but one of the main ones is the fantastic hospital. Thanks again to all who work at Airedale, you are brilliant.
