Milton Keynes MPs Mark Lancaster and Iain Stewart attended the eagerly awaited opening - the latest development in a £60m investment at the hospital happening over the following three years.

Further improvements will include the medical teaching facility for trainee doctors and clinical staff, an additional multi-storey car park and a bespoke cancer centre.

“I am delighted to see the new main entrance at Milton Keynes University Hospital has now opened,” Mark said.

“Continued investment will also result in an upgraded A&E, which will have a marked effect on the level of care the staff will be able to provide for local residents.

“Evidence enough is we’re already attracting a number of highly qualified clinicians to MK.”

Iain added: “This is just the first part of a significant investment programme going into our hospital. Mark and I have worked hard to make sure the hospital has a bright future and I am confident we will see continued expansion over the coming years.”
