We are committed to working with our patients and the public as partners, and to putting patients and the public at the heart of all we do.
We want patients and local people to be directly involved in our work, helping us to shape local health services.
Here are the opportunities available to have your say:
Consultation closed 21 December 2021
We are running a public consultation regarding aligning policies across Bedfordshire, Luton and Milton Keynes.
In 2021 the three former Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs), Bedfordshire, Luton and Milton Keynes merged to become one organisation. Most of the existing policies for each area were very similar, however the three policies below had clear differences:
- Fertility Services
- Gluten-free Food Prescribing
- Milton Keynes Pharmacy First Ailment Scheme
In order to provide equal access to services we need to move to a single policy for each service. See our Policy Consultation page for details of the consultation and how to take part.
The NHS is reviewing the services provided at Mount Vernon Cancer Centre, and we want to hear from as many people as possible, so we make the best possible changes.
We are currently reviewing the way Musculoskeletal (MSK) services are provided in the community and the hospitals.
MSK conditions are those affecting the bones, muscles and joints such as arthritis, frozen shoulder, fibromyalgia, chronic pain, plantar fasciitis, carpal tunnel syndrome, tennis elbow, slipped disc, sciatica, rheumatoid arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis and many more.
To do this well, we need to hear patient experiences of the services before, during and after the pandemic. Find out more here
Across Bedfordshire, Luton and Milton Keynes, we are working together to identify the right approach and delivery model to transform the way we provide diagnostic tests for our local population.
These health centres will offer a number of diagnostic tests at the same time, making it much easier and quicker for people to get tested and provide faster results, meaning treatment can happen sooner and lives can be saved.
We want to hear from local people about what services they would like to be provided at the centres. This insight will help us to improve how life-saving tests are delivered in our area.
The survey should take around 15 minutes to complete.
Survey closes 17th November 2021.

The purpose of this survey is to make you aware of the Bedfordshire, Luton and Milton Keynes Shared Health and Care Record (SHCR). Your comments are very important to us and this survey gives you the opportunity to tell us about your concerns or expectations and ask questions you may have around the SHCR.
Closing date for responses: 31 January 2022.
