Statement from Milton Keynes Hospital Charity

Staff at Milton Keynes University Hospital are working tirelessly to support the community through the COVID-19 crisis, and Milton Keynes Hospital Charity are doing all we can to support them, look after them and work with others to ensure they have everything they need.

Our wonderful, amazing staff are really going over and above for our patients and to protect those most vulnerable.

Please help us help them and make a donation via www.mkhcharity.org.uk or donate via our Amazon Wish List.

Useful information and FAQs

How can I support the hospital over this period?

Thank you so much for wanting to support the hospital in this way – we know it’ll be a challenging time for both staff and patients, so this really means a lot.

You can support us in two ways:

Making a donation via our website to support our efforts taking care of staff who will be under incredible stress and funding additional items for patients: https://mkhcharity.charitycheckout.co.uk/donate#!/

Donating via our amazon wish list https://www.amazon.co.uk/hz/wishlist/ls/PB56ACM4R0QP?type=wishlist

We do still have limited staff on site, so can accept postal donations if you send them to Milton Keynes Hospital Charity, Standing Way, Eaglestone, Milton Keynes MK6 5LD.

Can I drop off items to the hospital to support staff?

Please DO NOT come in to drop items off at the hospital site. As much as we would love to see you, we are following government guidance and discouraging anyone from visiting our hospital site for non-urgent care.

Unfortunately we cannot accept donated items from supporters, including groceries, homemade food, cakes or sandwiches.

We currently cannot accept items that require refrigeration, but are working on a way to have these stored on site for staff to access – please bear with us while we organise this safely.

Please note – if for any reason we are unable to make use of the items, we will liaise with Milton Keynes Council to ensure they are reallocated to other Volunatry Service organisations.

Can I support you by volunteering?

Our volunteers team have been overwhelmed by your requests for help in this way, thank you. If you would like to support please email Voluntary.Services@mkuh.nhs.uk and someone will get back to you as soon as they are able.

Are there any other ways of supporting you?

We would love to hear and discuss your creativity and ideas, so please do email them across to us at fundraising@mkuh.nhs.uk. Please do share your stories via social media too – you can tag us @mkhcharity on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.

If you have any other questions please email fundraising@mkuh.nhs.uk.
