Progress at Bedford

Completed work

The first phase of the ED upgrades completed earlier this year. This delivered nine additional beds in Victoria Ward, two extra paediatric cubicles, a two-storey extension, two larger adult waiting areas and new reception. The former reception was converted to provide an isolation room, treatment rooms and a mental health room. The final part of phase one saw a dedicated secure paediatric ED and a new minors treatment area.

Planned work

The Trust was successful in obtaining a further £750k to support the second phase of the project; a first floor extension to the new ED entrance which will enable expansion of the imaging provision within ED. This work will commence as soon as possible.
