Plans for new hospital in Milton Keynes move step closer following government funding

    Plans for a new Women and Children’s Hospital hospital in Milton Keynes have moved a step closer following funding to begin preperations.

    Back in 2020, it was announced that Milton Keynes would receive a new £200 million Women and Children’s Hospital, as part of the Government’s plan to build 48 new hospitals across the country.

    Now, local MP Ben Everitt has confirmed that the green light has been received to begin preparations.

    Health Minister Maria Caulfield wrote to MK MPs Ben Everitt and Iain Stewart confirming funding had been approved to begin preparation works to support the delivery of the scheme including survey works, planning and modelling.

    Ben Everitt, the MP for Milton Keynes North, said: “I’m absolutely delighted we’re making progress on this £200 million investment into a new hospital for Milton Keynes.

    “During the 2019 election I campaigned on a pledge for extra funding for healthcare in the city and that’s exactly what this Conservative Government will deliver.

    “I’ve been working closely with Milton Keynes University Hospital and the Department For Health & Social Care on the scheme and will continue to do so.”
