  • Statement regarding usage of vaginal mesh

    At Milton Keynes University Hospital we do not use vaginal meshes for primary prolapse surgery due to higher complication rates when compared to non-mesh repairs.

    It is not recommended by the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (RCOG) and the British Society of Urogynaecologists (BSUG) as first line treatment for vaginal prolapse and the evidence behind the potential risk and benefits is still awaited.

    Our urogynaecologists use vaginal sub-urethral slings for management of stress incontinence and laparoscopic (keyhole)/abdominal meshes for recurrent prolapse or prolapsed uterus. Alternative treatment options are available for these conditions and women have the right to choose their options.

  • Milton Keynes Hospital set to launch new electronic patient record system

    A new electronic patient record system that will improve the way Milton Keynes University Hopsital cares for local people is set to go live at the hospital on 14 and 15 April 2018, and it’s called eCARE.

    eCARE is more than just a new computer system – it will give the hospital’s doctors and nurses access to improved up-to-date information so that they can deliver safer, more efficient and more timely care.

    It means that every time hospital staff record a patient’s health information, it will be stored in the system. That means patients won’t have to keep giving staff the same information over and over again as they move through different parts of the hospital.

    eCARE will collate patient details in one easy-to-access place that is secure and confidential. This includes medical history - including laboratory test results, prescriptions, allergies and current prescriptions. Previously, this information may have been stored in many different places and in many different forms that were not easily accessible to clinicians.

    Milton Keynes University Hospital is currently extremely busy due to a number of acutely unwell patients requiring treatment.
    To allow the hospital to see and treat those patients that require immediate and urgent care, please only attend the emergency department if you are seriously unwell. The hospital is strongly encouraging patients to consider whether they can access the care they need from their GP, a pharmacist, by dialling NHS 111 or by visiting the local Walk-In Centre before coming to A&E.

As a teaching hospital, we conduct education and research to improve healthcare for our patients. During your visit students may be involved in your care, or you may be asked to participate in a clinical trial. Please speak to your doctor or nurse if you have any concerns.
