The Luton and Dunstable University Hospital (L&D) will shortly submit a planning application to build a new critical care block and a new acute services block on the hospital site. This application provides a refresh to the scheme that gained local support and planning consent in 2016.
The L&D have been successful in receiving central funding of circa £100 million to redevelop the hospital site. This exciting project will provide state-of-the-art clinical accommodation for the following services:
And will provide additional car parking on the Lewsey Road car park.
If the planning application is approved, construction work is planned to start in Spring 2020.
We would like to use this opportunity to share our plans with you and encourage you to feedback any queries or concerns you may have.
Please come along to find out more about the redevelopment of your local hospital. If you are unable to attend, please email your queries and or comments to [email protected]
Benefits of the scheme include
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 we will call one designated member of family every day between 1.30pm and 4.30pm with a daily phone update. Those who miss a call back during this time and are concerned can contact the helpline on 01234 730500.
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.
