Luton and Dunstable University Hospital NHS Foundation Trust (L&D) has opened a brand new £1.6m Orthopaedic Centre which provides state of the art outpatient facilities for patients and staff.
Located, just a few minutes away from the main hospital, the new centre is the first key stage of the five year project to redevelop the hospital and its services.
The purpose built Orthopaedic Centre houses the hospital’s fracture and orthopaedic clinics, associated musculoskeletal and plaster services, as well as X-ray facilities.
Marion Collict, Director of Operations, said: “This new centre will provide a significantly improved experience for our patients, with all the services they need under one roof. It also offers better access for patients with physical disabilities and mobility problems. This heralds the beginning of our ambitious hospital redevelopment plans which aim to transform services for our patients over the next few years.”
The centre is located a few minutes’walk from the L&D hospital, at the M1 Junction 11 roundabout, adjacent to Travelodge.
The existing fracture clinic on the hospital site will be redeveloped to allow for much needed expansion of our A&E department.
