The NHS is reminding people in Milton Keynes where they can access expert medical treatment during the Easter bank holiday weekend (14 – 17 April 2017).
Patients can save time in the waiting room by visiting their pharmacist for quick, confidential advice on a range of common illnesses.
As the Prime Minister formally begins the UK’s departure from the European Union with the triggering of Article 50 today, I felt it was important to acknowledge how this may make some of our colleagues feel and to try to provide reassurance to those who may feel worried about what it might mean and anxious about the future.
Starting on Monday (March 27) we will be refurbishing our reception area in A&E.
Sixty medical students begin their clinical training at Milton Keynes University Hospital this week, with the young doctors in the making due to qualify in just over two and a half years.
On Tuesday 28 February, we held our first in a series of events entitled The Big Conversation. The focus of this event was on a number of site developments that are currently ongoing on the Trust site, including the opening of ward 24 and the construction of both our new main entrance and Academic Centre.
The session was well attended and was also the first to be streamed live on the Trust's Facebook account. For all those who were unable to make the event, please find a link to the presentation here.
Our brand new 20-bed planned surgery ward was officially unveiled by Chief Executive, Professor Joe Harrison on Friday 24 February.
Ward 24 will be used by patients coming in for planned (elective) surgery. The new ward has been built next to the hospital’s Treatment Centre, with the theatre complex and Ambulatory Care Unit (now named ward 23) close by.
Milton Keynes University Hospital is one of the busiest urgent and emergency care sites in the country and there are certainly no plans to downgrade or merge our A&E or maternity services.
The Bedfordshire, Luton and Milton Keynes (BLMK) Sustainability and Transformation Plan (STP) is publicly available and nowhere does it say these services, nor any other hospital services, are to be closed or moved.
We are working closely with all of the other 15 partner organisations in our region to deliver patients improved health and social care services in BLMK now and in the future, and no decisions about any service will be made without full public involvement and consultation.
Public and Staff Governors nominations has now closed and we can now introduce you to the candidates.
