Duke of Edinburgh In Luton

Prince Phillip has been to the Luton & Dunstable Hospital to officially open their Cardiac Centre.

The Cardiac Centre has cost around £5.5 million and will serve the 350,000 people living in the Luton and Dunstable area.

The hospital say the centre is important because it will enable them to treat those with heart conditions locally 

In the past they would have had to travel to London.

During his visit the Duke spoke to nurses and saw how the facilities worked

Heart spoke to Rebecca Brown who is the lead specialist radiographer in the Cardiac Centre:

"It was a real honer to represent the hospital, he asked us what type of work we do here, who we practice on, had a little giggle about how we all learn what we're doing and we explained the procedures and how it will benefit the community.

"He had a genuine interest obviously with his past history of needing some intervention a few Christmas's ago, he had quite an inside of how the patents feel and was very interested in what the operators were doing while he was poorly"
