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.
Thank you for choosing to become a member of our Foundation Trust. Please view our Privacy Notice for Foundation Trust Members. This notice is to inform you about how the personal data collected in your membership application form will be used by the Trust. Your information will be held securely and used in accordance with new data protection legislation – the GDPR – which came into effect on 25th May 2018.
Thank you for your enquiry, we will be in touch shortly.
To families of all our patients, we wanted to give a reminder that sadly, at both Bedford and the Luton & Dunstable Hospital, we are still unable to allow any visitors on site, unless there are exceptional circumstances, for example in maternity or children’s departments, or for those patients who are receiving palliative treatment at the end of their lives, on a case-by-case basis.
At Bedford changes are being made to support services and we would now ask that, from Saturday 6 June 2020, you contact the wards using the direct lines found here.
For the Luton & Dunstable, we are offering a dedicated Next of Kin helpline for family members who want to check up on their loved ones – please nominate one family member to call 01582 718884 between 8am and 6pm.
