Important information - The A&E entrance and reception desk have moved

From today (Monday 18 Spetember) our A&E entrance and reception desk have permanently moved to area formally used as the hospital’s main entrance. This will no longer be referred to as the Acorn Suite.

The building is located directly to the right of the current A&E reception and the new entrance into the department will be fully signposted. There will be no disruption to services during this move.

The new A&E entrance and reception will offer patients an improved waiting area, and the move will allow the hospital to carry out vital renovation works to the building which, when completed, will increase the clinic rooms available.

Proposed work to start on the development of the north of the hospital site

 

Milton Keynes University Hospital NHS Foundation Trust (MKUHFT) will be developing the north part of the hospital site, close to the cardiology department, to improve facilities and infrastructure. Work will begin in August 2017.

In this proposed location, a number of developments will be made to enhance and increase the services that we offer at the hospital. The project is scheduled to be completed in winter 2019 when we will be able to access a new Cancer Therapy Centre (CTC) which will significantly improve the cancer services available at the Trust.
