Welcome to Heather and Bilberry

Our Heather and Bilberry wards are based at Wharfedale Hospital.  They provide assessment and rehabilitation for your ongoing needs following a hospital stay to enable you to regain independence to return home at the earliest opportunity. Care will include assessment of your rehabilitation needs in partnership with you and understanding your personal goals for successful rehabilitation. Care will be provided by therapists, nurses, support workers and doctors where necessary.
