Biggleswade Hospital has been temporarily closed due to an equipment break-down.

The hospital on Potton Road is currently without heating or hot water, and engineers have estimated that it will take several days to repair.

A spokesman said: “Discussion are taking place with patients and their family/carers to ensure that all are fully involved and informed of the resulting relocation of the two patients who were under the care of Biggleswade Hospital Rehabilitation Unit and patient choice is being respected. Once the repairs have been completed, we will be re-opening the unit for further admissions.”
