Some children's services are being re-instated at Bedford Hospital today following the recruitment of more doctors.

In July seven junior doctors were withdrawn from the paediatric department due to concerns from the General Medical Council.

GPs will now be able to refer children directly to Riverbank Children's Day Unit for a rapid same-day assessment.
