Milton Keynes Hospital NHS Foundation Trust gives notice that it will hold elections to the Council of Governors of the Trust.
Only a year after publicly launching, the Touch of Pink appeal for Milton Keynes Breast Unit has reached its target!
Thanks to the local community raising the £80,000 needed, the hospital can now purchase a state-of-the-art digital x-ray machine to be used by the Breast Unit. The hi-tech scanner will allow surgeons to treat more people and offer safer, faster and more detailed diagnosis to hundreds of patients each year.
Since the hospital publicly launched the appeal in April 2012, kind-hearted businesses, schools and individuals across Milton Keynes have worked tirelessly to help reach the target. Breast Unit staff were instrumental to the appeal’s success, having started the fundraising with a ball and raising a staggering £11,000.
The hospital is actively working to reduce waiting times in A&E. Last week (April 22 to 28) 96.3 per cent of our A&E patients were seen and treated within four hours.
Milton Keynes Hospital is celebrating the International Day of the Midwife (May 5) by raising awareness of the support Supervisors of Midwives can offer to expectant mums.
Supervisors of Midwives (SoM) are experienced practising midwives who have undertaken additional training and education to support, guide and supervise midwives in the provision of safe, high quality care. Every midwife, whether employed by the NHS or working privately, must have a named SoM.
The charity fundraising for Milton Keynes Hospital – Healthcare Charity: MK – has announced Olympic Gold medallist Greg Rutherford as its first patron.
Healthcare Charity: MK raises funds for items that enhance the care of patients and their families.
The long-jumping Olympian became involved with the charity after hearing about its good work from mum Tracy, who works on the Maternity Ward. Greg hopes his involvement will make a difference to the charity and help its fundraising efforts. He is also hoping to visit the hospital in May on his return to the UK.
Greg said: “I’m delighted to be the first Patron for Healthcare Charity: MK and help raise awareness of such a great, local cause. Milton Keynes Hospital is quite special to me because it plays such a key part in the community –and coming from Milton Keynes, I couldn’t think of a better cause to support.”

PET replaced our previous patient service, the Patient Advice and Liason Service (PALS), to help patients share their feedback with clinical staff in the hospital.
