The hospital has around 550 beds, including day acute and neonatal beds and employs around 3,500 staff, providing a full range of acute hospital services and an increasing number of specialist services to the growing population of Milton Keynes and surrounding areas. All in-patient services and most outpatient services are provided on the main hospital site.
Recent months have been an unprecedented time for NHS hospitals across the UK – MKUH included – as the Covid-19 pandemic took hold. We rapidly had to devise very different ways of working to ensure the safety of staff, patients and visitors. While it has been necessary for us to operate differently, we have not and will not lose sight of our long-term ambitions and priorities in continuing to maintain safety and to improve our patient care, patient experience, and the range of services we offer.
One of the most significant and visible of these ambitions has been realised this year with the opening of our new Cancer Centre. This impressive building brings together our cancer services into one purpose-built location, providing patients undergoing cancer treatment with an environment designed for their specific needs. We’re now planning for future developments including a new Assessment Unit as part of a planned £200m hospital redevelopment programme in Milton Keynes.
At MKUH we work with many partners in the local and regional health economy, including local healthcare providers, universities, councils and third sector organisations. We play an active part in the Bedfordshire, Luton and Milton Keynes Integrated Care System (BLMK ICS), which will see local health and care organisations working more closely together to provide better coordinated care.
We looking for a Chair who can engage and communicate across our wide range of stakeholders, someone who can bring together everyone in our whole community: the people who live in and near MK, the people we treat, their families, our workforce and our volunteers. A champion for equality, diversity and inclusion, you have the ability to build relationships, listen to a wide range of perspectives and unite people around a common goal.
This is a unique opportunity to help deliver the NHS 10 year plan and shape the future of local services by sharing your talents and expertise to maintain patient safety and treatment effectiveness, improve the experience of patients, help transform services, work with local partners to deliver the BLMK ICS strategy and to make a positive difference to the health and wellbeing of our communities. Looking ahead our focus will remain, whatever challenges we face as a hospital and as a nation, on providing the excellent care and services the people of Milton Keynes expect and deserve.
