Working at MKUH

New City. Growing Hospital.

Milton Keynes University Hospital (MKUH) sits at the heart of the city of Milton Keynes, one of the fastest-growing places in the UK. The population is set to almost double to 500,000 by 2050.

As a hospital, we have grown significantly over the last five years, building a new state-of-the-art Medical School, a brand-new Cancer Centre and one of the country’s largest Same Day Emergency Care Centres – all of which improve the experience of both our patients and our staff.

We pride ourselves on delivering excellent care to our patients and believe that the way to do this is to provide the best possible working environments for our staff.

A leading organisation with a leading benefits package.

Our sector-leading benefits package has been shaped by the feedback and ideas from staff. This includes free parking, free tea and coffee, free EV charging, flexible working opportunities and much, much more. Read more about our benefits here.

It is an exciting time to join our hospital as we are one of 40 Trusts across England that are part of the government’s New Hospital Programme, the largest hospital improvement programme in a generation. We’re building a new Women’s & Children’s Hospital, surgery block and imaging centre to ensure our teams have world class facilities in which to deliver care. Find out more on our MKView website here.

Forward-thinking by working together.

At MKUH, we like to do things differently. We’re constantly looking at ways that we can evolve and improve our services and our staff are crucial for driving this innovation forward.

Every single member of staff has the opportunity to shape this transformation, from simple tweaks to improve the experience of patients to large-scale programmes of work extending over many months, and in some instances, years.

As part of #TeamMKUH, you have a voice. Your ideas, shaped by your experience and expertise, enable us to continually grow, evolve and provide the best possible service to patients. We actively encourage all colleagues to share their feedback.

A shared commitment to
net carbon zero.

The NHS has an objective to be net carbon zero, for emissions it controls, by 2040. At MKUH, we are committed to achieving this objective five years earlier, ensuring that we provide a sustainable service for all of our patients now and in the future.

We have already introduced a number of changes and innovations to reduce our environmental impact including switching to a renewable energy supplier, installing over 3,000 solar panels, introducing more than 60 electric vehicle charging points and developing a new real-time patient food service.

Our green agenda, led by our Chief Finance Officer, is in full swing and as part of #TeamMKUH, you will play an active role in supporting our ambitions. Find out more about our Green Plan here.

The future of healthcare happens here.

As well as improving our estate, we pride ourselves on being the ‘first’ to introduce significant enhancements to the care that our patients receive, such as the Versius Surgical Robot, where we became the first hospital in Europe to use the technology to perform major gynaecological surgery and working with Apple to make medical records available to patients securely via the Apple Health app.

Be part of something outstanding.

We’re on a journey to becoming an outstanding acute provider and only through investing in our amazing staff will we achieve this aspiration.
