PLEASE SEE INFORMATION BELOW. PLEASE HELP US SUPPORT THIS WORTHY LOCAL CAUSE.
During 2017-18 season ... WE SUPPORTED TWO LOCAL CHARITIES....
1. The Bedford Hospitals Charity
2. The Pancreatic Cancer Research Fund
We were able to raise £200 for each of these during the 2017/18year.
This was mainly due to the very successful Charity quiz held Friday 27th July 2018.

|Neonatal Intensive Care Unit
The Neonatal Unit at the L&D is one of only three units in the
East of England who provide intensive care for the premature
and sick newborn babies. 1 in 7 babies born will need support
from the Neonatal Team.
At the L&D we have three separate nurseries, one for
intensive care and high dependency, one high dependency
and one for predominantly special care babies. There are 37
cots in the Unit in total. 11 are intensive care cots, 8 are for
high dependency and 18 are specials care cots.
Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) Appeal
The NICU Appeal was launched to raise additional funds to
buy extra equipment and enhance the unit to ensure that all
the babies will be treated in the best possible environment. 1
in 7 babies born at the Luton & Dunstable University Hospital
will need specialist care. Over 900 premature and sick babies
are treated in our Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) every
year. There is a heartwrenching and heart-warming video clip
- Jack's Journey - illustrating the work and the good outcome
from the L&D NICU.
