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 38 governors who represent the interest of the members and the wider community. Meet your governors.
