The Luton & Dunstable University Hospital is a highly rated, diverse and forward thinking place to work. We are a Foundation Trust serving a multi-cultural population of over 350,000 across Bedfordshire and North Hertfordshire.
Through tremendous commitment and hard work, our Paediatrics, Emergency Care Services and Outpatient Services achieved “Outstanding” in our 2016 Care Quality Commission inspection. Similarly we had an overall rating of “Good” across the rest of the hospital. We were praised as compassionate, empathetic and exhibiting patient outcomes above the average when compared with other acute Trusts.
We are a regional centre of excellence for several key specialties including, Obesity Research, Neurophysiology, Cardiology, Ophthalmology and Cancer Services. We are a tertiary level NICU provider and one of the largest centres for breast screening in the country.
The hospital continues to be committed to delivering the best patient care using the best clinical knowledge and technology available.

STAFF ‘AT RISK’ IN THE EAST OF ENGLAND
Following internal redeployment processes, vacancies at the Trust will be advertised to all prospective applicants at the same time via NHS jobs. If a suitable at risk NHS applicant from outside the Trust declares an interest or submits an application they will be given first consideration for the vacancy in order to retain key skills and minimise the cost of change associated with the NHS reforms within the region. If this applies to you then you should email the Recruitment and Resourcing Team at ( Email address removed ) to enable the necessary arrangements to be made.
Applications from job seekers who require Tier 2 sponsorship to work in the UK are welcome and will be considered alongside all other applications.
