We now have a space within the new main entrance at Milton Keynes University Hospital which we share with Age UK Milton Keynes.

We know that when a loved one goes into hospital it can be a particularly stressful time for carers. We are working closely with the wards and departments in the hospital to ensure that support is given to carers whilst their loved one is in hospital. Carers can access this support whilst their loved one is in hospital and they will continue to receive our support once the person they look after is discharged back to the community.

Our Hospital Support Worker is based in the Information, Advice and Support Service in the new main entrance which has a comfortable seating area. Our staff can meet with carers in this space or elsewhere in the hospital to provide information, advice, guidance and emotional support.

Carers MK can be contacted in the hospital by telephone on 01908 996076 or via the main switchboard (01908 660033) on extension 86076. We can also be contacted by email to carers.mk@mkuh.nhs.uk

Alternatively we can be contacted at our main office in Central Milton Keynes by telephone on 01908 231703 or by email to mail@carersmiltonkeynes.org. Any hospital-related enquiries will then be passed on to our staff at the hospital.
