Elderly Care

What we do

The Elderly and Intermediate Care Service in Bradford strives to provide safe, high-quality care to the older population of the region, and is a leader in the development of safe alternatives to acute care, including the Virtual Ward.

Elderly care wards

We offer a consultant-led service for people over the age of 77 (or sometimes those over 65 from care facilities, depending on clinical need), who are acutely unwell.

Patients are usually admitted via Accident and Emergency or by their GP. Our wards include:

  • Ward 3 – admissions and assessment. Patients are usually admitted to this ward for assessment before being discharged (with support if necessary from the Virtual Ward), or moved to a ward equipped for a longer spell of care.
  • Ward 29 – acute care of the elderly. Patients are moved to these wards if they need a longer period of acute consultant-led care.
  • Ward 30 – acute admissions Unit for neck of femur and acute elderly care.
  • Ward F5 – elderly care.

Intermediate care wards

Our intermediate care wards are for patients of any age (but usually older people) following an acute hospital stay or those who are trying to avoid an acute hospital stay.

They focus on rehabilitation and restoring functional abilities, with medical input from consultants, GPs and multi-disciplinary team-working.

Intermediate care wards are based at:

  • Westbourne Green Community Hospital
  • Westwood Park Community Hospital
  • Ward F3 at St Luke’s Community Hospital
