Milton Keynes Hospital not meeting basic care needs

Milton Keynes Hospital

Milton Keynes Hospital has been criticised in a report from the Care Quality Commission. The report found it failed to meet any of the five basic standards, including safeguarding patients from abuse, meeting nutritional needs and having appropriate staffing levels.

Lisa Knight, Milton Keynes Hospital Chief Nurse and Director of Patient Care, said: "Providing safe, quality, compassionate patient care is the priority for Milton Keynes Hospital."

"We are sorry our patients did not receive the high standard of care that they deserve ... The hospital has reviewed its staffing levels to ensure that every ward has the right number of doctors and nurses with the right skills to safely care for their patients and that all patients' needs are met."
