As an NHS Foundation Trust we are accountable to the local community.
Help shape the future of your local hospitals by becoming a member!
Bedford Hospital NHS Trust and Luton and Dunstable University Hospital NHS Foundation Trust merged on 1 April 2020 to form Bedfordshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.
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.
Members elect the governors. We currently have 44 governors who represent the interest of the members and the wider community. Meet your governors.

Although on the 19 July 2021 regulations around the use of facemasks / coverings and social distancing will change across the country, at Bedfordshire Hospitals all COVID infection prevention control measures currently in place will remain the same.
The Trust has decided it is currently not safe to lift all restrictions at our hospitals.
Everyone attending our sites will still be required to wear a facemask (unless medically exempt), adhere to social distancing and attend your appointments alone especially in our Emergency Departments and Outpatients (exclusions apply to our paediatric patients and those requiring carer support)
Visiting is now permitted on most of our adult inpatient wards in a controlled manner. Appointments need to be pre-booked with ward staff.
Full details about attending our hospitals and visiting is available here.
