For patients that have booked for a COVID-19 (coronavirus) test via the Central Booking System on the Government website , please do not attend the Bedford Hospital site. Please dial 0300-3032713 where you will be advised where to attend. We are currently experiencing issues with additional visitors to the hospital site for these purposes and blocking access to emergency vehicles. Many thanks for your urgent assistance on this matter.
To families of all our patients, we wanted to give a reminder that sadly, at both Bedford and the Luton & Dunstable University 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 both our hospitals changes are being made to support services, and we would now ask that you contact the wards using the direct lines found here for Bedford and here for Luton and Dunstable University Hospital.
