Luton & Dunstable Hospital

As the first NHS Foundation Trust in Bedfordshire, Hertfordshire and Buckinghamshire - and the best hospital in the East of England (CGC 2009) - our top priority is to offer the best possible patient experience - putting the patient first every time.

As the first hospital in England to be selected by the Health Foundation for our work on improving patient safety - an area in which we continue to excel - the L&D continues to be an agent for change by involving patients and FT members in re-desigining and improving our services.

During 2009-10 we continued to reduce our MRSA and C.diff infections helping us to retain our reputation as one of the safest hospitals in the country.

The L&D's reputation attracts top clinicians and specialists, together with some of the most experienced and caring nursing staff.

Macmillan Specialist Palliative Care

The goal of specialist palliative care is to ensure the best quality of life for Adults and Older Adults with life limiting conditions and their families both through the direct care of those with complex needs by links with specialist services / teams and the indirect care of those with palliative care needs through expert advice, support, education and training and governance.
The role of the Macmillan Clinical Nurse Specialist is to work in partnership with the primary care team and hold a caseload of those patients with complex specialist palliative care needs. Each patient with a life limiting condition will be assessed holistically using an agreed tool at the beginning of their palliative diagnosis and at appropriate points of the care pathway. Referral is made to other services and agencies as appropriate and the team will work with the relevant key worker at any given time.
The Macmillan Specialist Palliative Care team includes a Specialist Palliative Care Physiotherapist whose aim is to maximise patients’ ability to function, promote independence and assist them to adapt to their condition. This is available to patients in north and mid Beds localities. The Specialist Palliative Care Physiotherapist will also give educational support to South Beds locality.
The team also work in partnership with Bedfordshire Partnership for Excellence in Palliative Support (PEPS).
