Ben Everitt MP Backs Maternity And Children’s Unit Campaign

    Milton Keynes Hospital could be getting a brand new £200m Maternity and Children’s Unit if new MP Ben Everitt’s campaign with Iain Stewart MP comes to fruition.

    Ben, who won the Milton Keynes North seat with a majority of over 6,000, made hospital funding one of the key pledges in his election campaign and will continue to work closely with the hospital to ensure it gets what it needs.

    MK Hospital has already been given money to plan for a £100m expansion, but the two local MPs are hoping to secure even more money for a specialist Maternity and Children’s Unit.

    Ben said: “Our local hospital was built when MK was a fraction of the size it is now and we need to make sure it keeps up with the demands of today and the future. Throughout the election I’ve been lobbying Health Secretary Matt Hancock about the specific needs of the hospital.

    “The Government has committed a lot of funding to expansion over the last nine years, including a brand new £10m Pathway Unit. There is also a Cancer Centre currently under construction and we’ve recently had a new ward full of beds fitted.”

    “But we need to do more and I really hope we’ll be able to secure an extra £200m for this brand new Maternity and Children’s Unit which will have such an incredible impact on both our wonderful NHS staff and families across MK.”
