Become a member

As an NHS Foundation Trust we are accountable to the local community.

Help shape the future of your local hospital by becoming a member!

Plans are progressing to merge Bedford Hospital with Luton and Dunstable University Hospital.

We are looking to expand our Foundation Trust Membership to include individuals from across the whole of Bedfordshire and surrounding counties to ensure our membership represents the population both hospitals serve. (Initially you will be signing up to the membership of the Luton and Dunstable University Hospital NHS Foundation Trust. At the point of the merger, you will then be a member of the joint hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.)

This online form is located on the L&D website to ensure all FT Membership information is kept in one place.
Any new members signing up from the Bedford Borough Council and Central Bedfordshire Council administrative areas together with those from adjacent villages and parishes will be held on the new Bedford Hospital Members database.

This notice is to inform you about how the personal data collected in your membership application form will be used by the Trust.
