The Sterile Services department at the Luton and Dunstable University Hospital is a customer focused and forward looking department.
We provide a complete surgical instrument decontamination service to the Trust, many local GPs and Clinics. Our well trained and fully qualified staff process over 100,000 items every year to the highest standards.
The Department operates quality systems in line with ISO 13485, ensuring a consistently high standard of decontamination and service provision. We are also accredited to the European Medical Devices Directive MDD 93/42 EEC.
Employing state of the art computer tracking and tracing technology, we can offer robust instrument tracking. This enables precise control of instrument inventory and validation of decontamination processes.
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.
