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.
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.
