Many consultant and junior doctors across the NHS will go on strike from 2 to 5 October. Please help us to help you, by choosing the right service for the care you need. Please use A&E only if it’s a genuine emergency or a serious accident.

Welcome to the website of the Bedfordshire, Luton and Milton Keynes Integrated Care System. 

We’re ambitious for the health and wellbeing of the great people who live in our city, towns, villages and communities. You can read our health and care strategy here. You can also read our Joint Forward Plan which we’ve co-developed with our partners to set out how we’ll be working together to tackle our most stubborn challenges.

Our partnership includes a diverse range of NHS organisations – hospital trusts, ambulance trusts and community and mental health services. It also benefits from committed local authorities, lots of great voluntary and community sector organisations and our Healthwatch partners and others. Read more about our Partnership or watch this video.

This website is packed with information about how we are working to support Your Health and Care. You can also see our latest News and Events, including case studies of our work with partners across BLMK.

We’re building our presence on social media, and you can see our latest Tweets below. Do follow us @BLMKHealthCare.
