The project to relocate the Luton Dialysis Unit with purpose built facilities is progressing well. The preliminaries have been completed and the lease was signed on behalf of the Trust in early April. There will be a construction timetable available agreed within the next few weeks and some early work on the infrastructure (pathways etc) is already under way.

The new unit is to be named The Chiltern Kidney Centre (ENHT) and is expected to be fully operational towards the end of 2021 It will be located at:

Unit 6,

Nimbus Park,

Dunstable, LU5 5WZ.

If you would like to look at the architect’s drawings of the new unit and see a ‘fly through’ impression of the facility follow this link.

We know that there will be many concerns and questions from patients and carers who have dialysis at Luton about the impact of these changes on their ongoing care. LAKPA will be working closely with the Trust to ensure that everyone can remain fully informed. Final plans for this are currently being finalised and include

•A webinar hosted by the ENH Trust

•Up to date information on progress in the News section of this website

•Individual communication with patients to keep them informed of progress

•A dedicated email address for any queries:- admin@lakpa.org
