It has come to the hospital's attention that individuals internationally have been receiving 'job offers' purporting to be from this hospital.
These job offers are fraudulent and have not originated from the hospital.
If you receive such an email, please delete it.
The fraud investigation team has raised the issue at a national level.
Anyone who is interested in a career at the hospital is advised that all jobs are advertised on NHS Jobs.
A local fundraiser has made her latest donation to the Neonatal Unit at Milton Keynes Hospital this month– bringing the total she has raised to an inspiring £130,000.
Sandie Searle started fundraising for the unit after her son Stephen was tragically killed in a road traffic accident on November 17, 2000.
Fundraising in his memory, Sandie formed the Stephen Searle Remembrance Fund to support the neonatal unit where Stephen spent six weeks when he was born.
With the help and support of family and friends, she has raised £130,000 by organising dozens of events including family days, black tie balls and Elvis tribute nights.
Thanks to Sandie, the neonatal unit has purchased items such as incubators, heated mattresses, monitors and other pieces of equipment that make a huge difference to the care of the hospital’s tiniest patients.
Sandie’s fundraising has also funded the development of a room for parents to stay called ‘Stephen’s Room’. Listing this as an extra special achievement, Sandie said: “To have a room in Stephen’s name, where parents can spend some really private moments together with their most precious child, and where family members can share the most touching moments in a less clinical environment but with staff close to help, is to me is beyond price.”
A staff member at Milton Keynes Hospital has raised more than £1,000 after challenging herself to a day up close with lions– in aid of Leo’s Appeal for the hospital’s children’s wards.
Fundraising officer Jenny Howells took on the challenge of being a keeper for the day at Woburn Safari Park on Friday November 8.
By pitching in and helping the keepers with their daily routines, Jenny successfully reached her fundraising target and raised an impressive £1,048.60 for Leo’s Appeal.
She said: “Working with the lions for the day was a challenging but amazing experience. It feels all the more rewarding knowing that I am making a difference to children and their families at Milton Keynes Hospital.”
DOCTORS and nurses from across the country gathered in Milton Keynes to find out more about how to offer support to patients after a stay in intensive care.
Former intensive care patients at Milton Keynes Hospital are fortunate to be able to benefit from ICU Steps, one of the country’s few groups to provide guidance and support to these patients and their families. The group hosted a conference, which featured experiences from former intensive care patients and their families, as well as advice for other groups to get up and running. The theme of the conference was partnership between medical professionals and patients and their families.
Patients in intensive care are critically ill. They will often be sedated, or in a medically-induced coma and be connected to machines through wires and tubes.
After they leave intensive care, patients can suffer a range of physical symptoms like muscle wastage and change in taste. They may also experience psychological side effects such as anxiety, depression, nightmares, short-term memory problems and hallucinations.
This can make it difficult for former patients to get back to normal life, even once they have recovered from their illness.
Joe Harrison, Chief Executive said: "The priority for Milton Keynes Hospital is to provide safe, quality services to our local population. This process will enable us to secure a sustainable future, so we can continue to do this.
"Joint working and discussions have been ongoing for some time with Bedford Hospital. We are continuing this and welcome the opportunity to jointly review the health services in our respective areas.
"This review will provide an opportunity for us to demonstrate how working together across health and social care can benefit our patients by improving clinical outcomes and also secure the financial viability of both hospitals."
Changes are being made to children's services at Bedford Hospital from August 1, 2013. Visit www.bedfordhospital.nhs.uk for more information.
