Above: Silsden's swish new medical centre is up and running after a 14-month building programme, during which health services were provided temporarily in cabins on what is now the car park. The previous health centre dated from 1980 and had become more and more cramped. The new building, which admirers say looks like a small hospital, houses nine GPs, seven nursing staff, a practice manager and assistant practice manager, plus a pharmacy. Silsden is one of 17 GP practices in a clinical commissioning group covering Airedale, Wharfedale and Craven, details of which were given in my blog of March 2013.
