As the first NHS Foundation Trust in Bedfordshire, Hertfordshire and Buckinghamshire, our top priority is patient safety and to look after our patients in a caring, safe environment. 2004 saw the L&D became 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 lead.
In 2009 we were awarded £150,000 for being "Best in Class" in tackling infection, having halved our MRSA and C.diff infections during the previous year. As from April 2009 a new MRSA screening programme has been introduced to ensure that this trend continues. In addition, we are committed to meeting the NHS 18 week patient care pathway. 2009 has also seen the L&D voted as the "8th Best NHS Employer in the UK" (source:Health Service JournalandNurses Week), attracting top staff and clinicians. During the 70th anniversary year of the hospital's foundation (founded in 1939) various celebrations are taking place. In October 2009, the Trust were awarded 'Excellent' for Quality of Services and 'Excellent' for Use of Resources by the Care Quality Commission. This result was the best in the East of England and demonstrates the Trust's commitment to quality and patient safety.
We are situated at Junction 11 of the M1 and have 400 parking spaces, including 50 for Blue Badge holders. The catchment population is approxinately 350,000 people. The L&D has developed some specialist services including cancer, obesity, neurophysiology and oral maxillofacial (jaw) surgery and has the responsibility for treating the most premature babies across the whole of Bedfordshire and Hertfordshire. We also have one of the country's largest breast screening centres and provide a limb fitting service for Hertfordshire and Bedfordshire.
The Trust consistently performs to high standards and, for the last seven years, has remained in financial balance. In August 2006 we became a NHS Foundation Trust. The Trust employs over 3,000 staff and has an annual spend (in 2008/09) of £189 million. Luton and Bedfordshire Primary Care Trusts are our two main commissioners.
