As we approach the Bank Holiday Easter period, staff at Bedfordshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust are urging the public to stay home.
We know it may be tempting to go out and visit family and friends this weekend but we’re pleading with the public to adhere to national guidance.
It’s incredibly important that you stay home, protect our NHS and save lives – do not be the person who spreads coronavirus, be the person who helps stop it, stay home.
Listen to members of staff urgent public pleas:
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.
