The Department of Health announced on Monday 5 August that it had approved £99.5m in capital funding to build a new Acute Services Block on the hospital site.

We were delighted to welcome the Minister of State for Health, Chris Skidmore MP, to the Luton and Dunstable University Hospital on 8 August where he met staff from across the hospital, visited A&E and toured some of the clinical services which will benefit from the recent capital funding announcement by the Department of Health.

The visit included a private round-table discussion with a cross-section of clinical staff, a visit to A&E and the Control Room, and a tour of HDU, Theatres and Maternity.

He said: “Thank you so much for a memorable visit. It was great to see the enthusiasm for the new £99.5m investment in the new build but also the commitment of management and staff with a clear vision for the future.”
