In response to recent media reports about A&E and maternity services at the hospital

Milton Keynes University Hospital is one of the busiest urgent and emergency care sites in the country and there are certainly no plans to downgrade or merge our A&E or maternity services.

The Bedfordshire, Luton and Milton Keynes (BLMK) Sustainability and Transformation Plan (STP) is publicly available and nowhere does it say these services, nor any other hospital services, are to be closed or moved.

We are working closely with all of the other 15 partner organisations in our region to deliver patients improved health and social care services in BLMK now and in the future, and no decisions about any service will be made without full public involvement and consultation.
