Milton Keynes University Hospital opens new mobile room to increase surgical capacity

Milton Keynes University Hospital has opened a brand-new mobile room unit today (4th March) as part of plans to increase the number of patients the hospital is able to see and treat.

The new mobile facility, supplied by Q-bital Healthcare Solutions, will house both a day case room and a dedicated short-stay recovery ward, ensuring patients can be seen and treated in the same location on the same day. While not connected to the hospital, the facility is positioned close to the Trust’s other surgical facilities, ensuring patient care, experience and flow is optimised.

The introduction of this facility is another way the hospital is increasing its elective (planned) activity, following other successful initiatives launched last year such as the Super Paediatric Surgery Days – providing dedicated days for paediatric surgery – as well as the introduction of High Volume Low Complexity lists, where more patients can be treated over a shorter space of time.

The Q-bital facility will enable the Trust to perform a range of day case general surgery operations as well as some dental, urology and gynaecology procedures.

Max Lawson, National Account Manager at Q-bital Healthcare Solutions, said: “It’s great to be helping the Trust with such ambitious and important plans, shortening waiting times and providing the local community with high-quality care across a range of specialities.”

"We are delighted to be able to bring in this new facility to ensure that our patients receive the treatment they need in a timely manner. We recognise patients are waiting longer than we would like and this is one of several ways in which we are reducing those waiting times, improving both the care and experience that our patients receive"
Emma Livesley, Chief Operations Officer at MKUH
