Want to say thank you to someone who helped you at MKUH?

Patients and visitors at Milton Keynes University Hospital (MKUH) can send personal messages of gratitude to staff members who have made their day – thanks to a new initiative launched by Milton Keynes Hospital Charity. 

A few kind words, or a simple ‘thank you’, can make such a big difference to NHS staff.

That’s why we’ve introduced the ‘My Thank You’ app at MKUH.

You’ll find posters, postcards, and banners all around the hospital promoting ‘My Thank You’ – look out for them if you’re visiting or coming in for an appointment.

We also have wonderful volunteers across various wards and departments signposting to the platform, demonstrating how it works.

Here are some of the posters and materials you might spot at the hospital, featuring Medical Student, Sarah Fabyan.

Simply scan the QR code on your phone, or text THANKS MKUH to 84901 and you’ll be sent a link (please bear in mind you’ll be charged one message at your standard network rate if you choose the text option).

But as you’re here reading this, the easiest (and free) way to leave your personal thank you message for a staff member at MKUH is right here

We know many patients and families like to give something back by way of a donation to show their gratitude.

So we’ve added the option to make a donation on ‘My Thank You’ once you’ve submitted your personal message.

Your kind contributions will go where the need is greatest at the hospital.

The image on the left is what you’ll see on screen after you’ve sent your message.

Here’s what Vanessa Holmes, Associate Director of Milton Keynes Hospital Charity said about the new app:

We recognise the profound effect of receiving appreciation. A few words of thanks really do have the power to lift spirits and boost morale for both frontline workers and those behind the scenes. 

We’re thrilled to introduce ‘My Thank You’, giving people the opportunity to share special words with individuals, teams, or our wonderful volunteers. Staff members can keep these messages to look back on whenever they like, or even add to staff noticeboards. 

As the hospital’s charity, we support all wards and departments through charitable donations. While it’s optional, people can make monetary contributions using ‘My Thank You’ to further amplify the impact of their appreciation.
