Hospital Improvements

Your hospital is changing

We are improving our facilities for staff and patients. For a short video explaining these developments, please see below:

Further details on these planned projects over the next 5 - 7 years.


Witan Gate House

In November 2016, 120 of our staff moved off-site to our new offices located in Central Milton Keynes (opposite The Hub). The fully air-conditioned offices boast two kitchens, a board room, breakout areas and large meeting rooms. The building which the office is in also offers Trust staff changing facilities, outdoor areas and secure parking.

The move will allow the Trust to better utilise space on site for clinical purposes.

New 20 bed ward - Ward 24

In February 2017, we opened ward 24 - our brand new 20-bed surgical ward which will allow us to increase and improve elective activity for our patients. 

The new ward, which will help the hospital deal with the ever-increasing demand for its services throughout the year, has been built next to the Treatment Centre (which is currently also the hospital's main entrance) as well as our theatres department - allowing for a quick and effective transfer for our patients.

New Main Entrance

Milton Keynes University Hospital’s new main entrance is now open.

The new entrance is located outside of the main outpatients building, opposite the multi-storey car park. The area includes a Costa Coffee, a Subway and a Little Fresh – a convenience store that can tailor it’s product offerings depending on local demand. More importantly, the new building contains an additional 80 seats for staff, patients and visitors to unwind.

Build an Academic Centre

As part of our joint medical school venture with the University of Buckingham, work has begun on an Academic Centre which will be located near the main roundabout when you first arrive at the hospital. 

This building will allow us to attract, train and retain the doctors and nurses of tomorrow. Included in the building will be a 200 seated lecture theatre, simulation suites, boardroom and classrooms. 

The build of the academic centre began in January 2017 and is expected to be completed by early 2018.

New Multi-Storey Car Park - Part of the North Site Developments

Work begins in October on the development of the north part of the hospital site. A two and a half year project begins in August 2017 to improve infrastructure as well as clinical space for our patients. 

The project will be constructed in four phases to ensure staff, patient and visitor safety is maintained. Following enabling works, phase 3 will see the construction of a new multi-storey car park that will provide 273 spaces.

A Cancer Therapy Centre  - Part of the North Site Developments

We are designing a new Cancer Therapy Centre that will allow us to provide more complex cancer treatments for our patients here at the hospital, whereas currently they have to travel to Northampton or Oxford - this will be the final phase of the north site developments. The new Cancer Therapy Centre will co-locate oncology, clinical haematology and cancer-related chemotherapy under one roof. The new building will mean that the hospital can: much improve the quality of its cancer services; help to increase capacity; establish new emergency care pathways and support the future demand for Cancer Services in Milton Keynes.
