It’s an exciting time for our maternity services at the Luton and Dunstable University Hospital as a number of our services will be moving to the brand new Acute Services Block (ASB) and New Ward Block. The work is due to complete in 2024, with maternity services estimated to move in 2025.

The Acute Services Block and New Ward Block will be essential in supporting Maternity, Neonatology, Critical Care and Theatre services.

Through this work, we will be able to improve sustainability and efficiency, maintain and improve quality standards – support patient-centred clinical services, with care delivered in modern, uplifting and fit for purpose environments and much, much more!
