The Archer Unit is a 20-bed rehabilitation unit, providing 24-hour care for adult patients.
You may have been admitted following a stay in hospital or your GP may have decided that you would benefit from some rehabilitation support to prevent you being admitted to hospital.
The Unit is staffed by a dedicated team of nurses, therapists and health care professionals working closely with local GPs and social care teams. Our aim is to support you to regain your confidence and mobility by helping you to develop old skills and teaching you new ones.
We will agree a rehabilitation programme with you to help you return home or to your usual place of residence as soon as is possible. All bays and wards are single sex with their own toilet facilities and we have a quiet room available for faith or spiritual needs or for confidential consultations.
Why would I be admitted to the Archer Unit?
This is a stepping stone towards your recovery as the Unit provides health care and rehabilitation.
Can my family and friends visit me in the Archer Unit?
Yes, we encourage visitors to the Unit and fully recognise the important role they have to play as part of your recovery.
Visiting times are 14.00-16.30 and 18.00-20.30

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.
