The Hospital Chief Executives, Stephen Conroy (Bedford Hospital) and David Carter (L&D University Hospital) hosted three public engagement events in November 2017. It was wonderful to see so many members of the public come along to hear about the merger plans including why it is being proposed, what it will mean for existing patients, the local population and staff, what might change and when these changes will take place.
