If your GP refers you to hospital, you are now able to choose to go anywhere in England where your care is funded by the NHS. This includes Bedford Hospital NHS Trust along with other NHS Trusts and some independent (private) hospitals. You will have more hospitals to choose from locally as well as throughout England, allowing you to make a choice that suits your personal circumstances, giving you greater convenience and peace of mind.

If you choose Bedford you can be certain of high quality clinical care and treatment by excellent medical and nursing staff in clean, comfortable surroundings. We have ample car parking and are easy to get to by car, bus or train.

Making the choice

Making the choice is easy, your GP has access to information about the different hospitals available to you and can help you to make your choice. Your GP can then use Choose and Book, an electronic system to book your appointment at a convenient time and place whilst you are at the surgery. Alternatively, if you would like some time to consider your options, your GP can give you a unique password and booking reference number which allows you to make your own appointment online or via the appointment line.

Appointment line: 0345 60 88 88 8 between 7am and 10pm
Textphone: 0345 8 50 22 50 between 7am and 10pm
