  • CURRENT DEMAND FOR EMERGENCY HOSPITAL CARE AT MKUH

    UPDATED STATEMENT (WEDNESDAY, 3 JANUARY, 2018 - 10am)

    HIGH NUMBERS of acutely unwell patients continue to be admitted via Milton Keynes University Hospital’s Emergency Department.

    Additional beds are open throughout the hospital in order to admit patients who need specialist acute care as quickly and safely as possible. This includes using surgical wards fully and using the hospital’s day surgery unit and other suitable clinical areas to admit patients attending the hospital as emergencies. These ‘escalation areas’ all have safe and appropriate nursing and medical cover.

    The hospital has seen higher than usual numbers of ambulances, and has been working well with South Central Ambulance Service to avoid delays in ambulance handovers.
