Carers Support at Milton Keynes University Hospital

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.

How we are currently working

Unfortunately, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are working remotely so the office in the main entrance is currently closed at this time.

Our Hospital Support Worker works on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays and can be contacted on 07496 044938. Outside of these days, please contact Carers MK on 01908 231703 or email.

Testimonials

We welcome Carers MK being based at Milton Keynes University Hospital for direct access for our patients and families. They are ideally positioned in our new main entrance allowing easy access for advice and support. Since Carers MK have been providing services at the hospital this has significantly improved the support for carers and families who are concerned about supporting their family member at home and in the community once they leave hospital.
Lisa Knight
Director of Patient Care and Head Nurse MKUH
The Dementia team make regular referrals to Carers MK and we think your service is very flexible, friendly and effective. Often we come across relatives who are main carers but have not heard about Carers MK and after they meet you they feel there is support available in community if they need it. It is also great that we now have an office in the Main Entrance for carers to pop in to have a chat or ask for support. Carers MK focuses on the importance of supporting carers and acknowledging the amazing care they provide. We would like to continue working closely with Carers MK especially since we recognise the importance of carers’ involvement in our patients care delivery.
