Michaela Tait, Patient Experience and Engagement Manager at MKUH, has sent us this up-to-date information about Covid-19 (coronavirus) as at March 17th, 2020.
Restrictions on visiting hours and non-urgent appointments to be rescheduled
Milton Keynes University Hospital NHS Foundation Trust has taken steps to protect patients, staff and visitors and maintain the running of its services as a result of the Covid-19 outbreak, including introducing restrictions on patient visits and postponing routine operations.
Urgent operations and operations that form part of cancer treatment will go ahead and patients should attend as planned.
These measures aim to reduce visitor footfall across the hospital – and with it the risk of spreading the virus – and maximise the number of hospital beds available for patients needing emergency care.
