Who are we?
Hands Off Bedford Hospital (HOBH) is a campaign set up to monitor the government mandated program, the Sustainability and Transformation Partnerships (STP) and ensure that no downgrading or cessation of our vital services will occur as a result. Bedford is part of the, Bedfordshire, Luton and Milton Keynes (BLMK STP).
We are also focusing on the outcomes of the merger between Bedford and Luton & Dunstable Hospitals. While the CEOs of the respective hospitals assure us that the move is only positive there is a history of other such mergers resulting in loss or downgrading of services such as A&E.
