Bedford Hospital: Parents flock to emergency meeting

Parents were among those who attended an emergency public meeting over the future of children's services at Bedford Hospital.

Managers of the hospital said they were working hard to restore the services but admitted it could be a difficult process.

Some services for patients aged under 19, including A&E and planned surgery, will be suspended from the end of July.

Bedford Hospital NHS Trust's decision came after junior doctors were removed due to concerns over their supervision.

An independent inquiry is to be held into the decision.
