The L&D's award is part of a £450 million pot from the government to improve A&Es across the country.

The £5.7 million will be used to expand and upgrade A&E facilities at the hospital, ensuring they have enough space to treat patients, manage patient flow and improve infection control.

South West Beds MP Andrew Selous MP said: “Staff at Luton and Dunstable Hospital have worked tirelessly over recent months, and I would like to thank them for everything they have done to get our local community through the coronavirus pandemic.
