Capital Funding Approved – Statement from Bedfordshire, Luton and Milton Keynes CCG’s

Tuesday, 6th August, 2019

Patricia Davies Joint Accountable Officer, Bedfordshire, Luton and Milton Keynes CCG’s commented: “This is terrific news for Bedfordshire, as it brings certainty to our residents who have been concerned about hospital services in Bedfordshire for some time.

“Bedfordshire has traditionally experienced underfunding and so a cash injection of £99.5 million to safeguard services and improve the care in our area is well placed.
We welcome the commitment from the Luton & Dunstable University Hospital and Bedford Hospital Trust to retain core services on both sites and we will continue to work closely with the hospitals as they develop their plans and the benefits of the planned merger are realised.”
