How a provider of software, consultancy, training, support, and IT and document management solutions, helped the Digital Innovation and Strategic Estates teams at Milton Keynes University Hospital NHS Foundation Trust ‘kick off their BIM journey’, and improve the data collection process.
Milton Keynes University Hospital (MKUH) NHS Foundation Trust is a mediumsized district hospital that provides a full range of acute hospital services, and an increasing number of specialist services, to the growing population of Milton Keynes and the surrounding areas. With around 550 beds, and over 4,000 staff, the hospital sees and treats approximately 400,000 patients every year through its outpatient and emergency services facilities.
Over the past 10 years, the Trust has invested significantly in the Milton Keynes University Hospital site, developing a number of new services and pathways to improve outcomes for patients, as well as the experience they receive while in its care. The hospital was originally built in 1984, and has had to evolve significantly over time to meet the growing needs of the local population, with Milton Keynes one of the UK’s fastest-growing locations. To meet this growing demand, a number of further developments are planned over the coming years as the local population’s health needs grow and evolve.
As part of the UK Government’s New Hospital Programme (NHP) – reportedly ‘the biggest hospital building programme in a generation’ – MKUH was granted seed funding to improve its hospital estate. Claire Orchard, the Trust’s Head of Digital Innovation, works alongside the Trust’s Strategic Estates team who will oversee the NHP work at the hospital. The Trust seeks to continuously improve the facilities across the Milton Keynes University Hospital site for both staff and patients, with the NHP team helping to drive the delivery of MKUH’s Estates and Infrastructure Strategy. This aims to support the organisation’s ambition of becoming an outstanding acute hospital.
