The Neurology Department at the L&D provides a comprehensive General Neurological Service to the local population and surrounding areas. The Clinical team consists of six part-time consultants who also work at the Royal Free London NHS Foundation Trust, and three Specialist Nurse Practitioners in Multiple Sclerosis.

To families of all our patients, we wanted to give a reminder that sadly, at both Bedford and the Luton & Dunstable University 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 both our hospitals changes are being made to support services, and we would now ask that you contact the wards using the direct lines found here for Bedford and here for Luton and Dunstable University Hospital.
