  • Fantastic feedback from hospital staff as national nhs staff survey is published

    More staff at Milton Keynes Hospital than ever before have reported feeling that the care of patients is the Trust’s top priority and that concerns raised about care are acted upon.

    The national NHS Staff Opinion Survey, published today (Tuesday, 24 February 2015) also reveals more staff working at Milton Keynes Hospital would recommend the organisation as a place to work or receive treatment.

  • Milton Keynes Hospital supports the ‘Hello my name is…’ campaign

    Milton Keynes Hospital is joining a massive social media movement launched by a terminally ill doctor from the north of England.

    The ‘Hello my name is…’ campaign was spearheaded by Dr Kate Granger, a young hospital consultant from Yorkshire who works in elderly care, to improve the patient experience not only here in the UK, but across the world.

    Kate became frustrated with the number of staff who failed to introduce themselves to her when she was in hospital. Her campaign on social media platform Twitter is inspiring nurses, doctors, therapists, receptionists, porters, domestics and staff in all roles.

  • Strike action on Thursday 29 January 2015

    Following their recent talks, the Government and the heath trade unions have announced that the industrial action planned for Thursday 29 January has been called off.

    No action will now be taken by members of the unions involved in the pay dispute with the Government.

    As a result, hospital services will be running as normal. 

  • Prime Minister praises independent medical school at Milton Keynes Hospital

    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.
