New organisation name and identity
Both hospital sites have retained their individual identity and the integrated NHS Foundation Trust has a name of Bedfordshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.
As in the case of Addenbrooke’s which is officially called Cambridge University Hospitals NHS FT, Bedford Hospital and the L&D have continued to be known by these names to their local communities.
Following engagement with staff, public and stakeholders, the new name of Bedfordshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust was unanimously supported by both Trust Boards in February 2018. View the summary of feedback.
