Milton Keynes Hospital to see a glimpse of normality as they begin to welcome back routine outpatients

    MKUH has been gradually welcoming back routine outpatients to the hospital now that the coronavirus peak has passed.

    This announcement follows the news that it has been twenty-nine days since the most recent coronavirus-related death occurred at the hospital.

    During the peak of the pandemic, MKUH had to cancel a large proportion of routine outpatient appointments. These cancelled appointments have been given priority to rebook, and now further appointments have started too.

    MKUH is also changing face-to-face appointments to telephone or video appointments where medically appropriate. Those who are affected by this change will be contacted by phone/text message, and then by a letter.

    MKUH said on their website: "We are working hard to ensure that social distancing measures are in place for face-to-face appointments. For example, we are ensuring a maximum number of patients in waiting areas at any one time.

    "You may be asked to wait in an alternative waiting area or return to your car whilst waiting to be seen. Please do not arrive more than 10 minutes before your appointment time and only bring someone with you to your appointment if it is absolutely essential. Please limit this to no more than one person."

    It is important that people who are showing coronavirus symptoms do not attend their appointment at the hospital. If symptomatic, you are advised to contact MKUH's Central Booking Office on 01908 997050.
