  • Prime Minister praises independent medical school at Milton Keynes Hospital

    David Cameron joined Iain Stewart MP in praising the new independent medical school, which has seen its first set of students start at Milton Keynes Hospital.

    During Prime Minister Questions today, Milton Keynes MP Iain Stewart asked: “While people are quick to criticise problems in the NHS, it is right also to celebrate its successes.”

    He added: “Will the PM join me in congratulating Milton Keynes Hospital and the University of Buckingham for establishing a new medical school which will train the next generation of clinicians and enhance the standard of Milton Keynes Hospital?”

  • Increasing number of patients attending A&E puts hospital under significant pressure

    Mitlon Keynes Hospital remains under significant pressure today (Monday, 5 January 2015) as increasing numbers of patients seek treatment through the Accident and Emergency Department.

    The hospital has opened 34 additional beds in the past 24 hours to enable patients needing acute care to be admitted. Doctors and nurses are also struggling to discharge patients into community care settings as nursing homes and other care centres are full.

  • Stop norovirus spreading this winter

    Do not visit the hospital if you have had sickness and diarrhoea in the last 48 hours.

    Norovirus, sometimes known as the ‘winter vomiting bug’, is the most common stomach bug in the UK, affecting people of all ages. It is highly contagious and is transmitted by contact with contaminated surfaces, an infected person, or consumption of contaminated food or water.

  • Hospital agrees continued improvement with sector regulator

    Milton Keynes Hospital NHS Foundation Trust has committed to continued improvements in its A&E performance, financial position and governance as part of a formal undertaking with health sector regulator Monitor.

    The enforcement undertaking, made under section 106 of the Health and Social Care Act 2012, has seen the Trust agree its plans with Monitor as part of a collaborative approach to continued improvement.

    This undertaking replaces the previous agreements (also made under section 106 of the Act) the Trust had with Monitor, and recognises progress in delivery against improvement plans over the past 12 months.
