Introducing Bedfordshire Community Health Services

From 1 April 2018 community health services in Bedfordshire will be provided by East London NHS Foundation Trust (ELFT) in partnership with Cambridgeshire Community Services (CCS) NHS Trust.  The service will be called Bedfordshire Community Health Services.

The service has been commissioned by Bedfordshire Clinical Commissioning Group (BCCG), in partnership with Central Bedfordshire Council and Bedford Borough Council. 

Bedfordshire Community Health Services will be delivered as a single service and patients should notice little difference to begin with, as they will see the same people, in the same places and contact the services using the same telephone numbers.

Further information will be available on the ELFT and CCS websites from 1 April:

The Bedfordshire Community Health Service will provide:

  • High quality, personalised care, which enables people, including those with chronic conditions, to live independent, active, healthy, happy lives closer to home.
  • Services designed around, and by, empowered patients. These will be place-based with multi-professional Primary Care Home teams integrating voluntary sector, health and social care.
  • Children and Young People’s services that are child and family focused (needs led), integrated, accessible and flexible, with a focus on early intervention and prevention.
