Healthcare in Milton Keynes
NPMC is proud to tell you about the role one of our GP Partners is playing in designing and managing healthcare across the city. They are doing this through their position as elected board members on Milton Keynes Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG).
How does Milton Keynes CCG commission services?
They do this through commissioning changes to local health services by working through programme boards charged to:
- Maintain and improve quality
- Keep tight financial control
- Deliver on the quality & productivity challenge
- Give momentum for transition and reform
Dr Tayo Kufeji is the elected board member for Maternity and Children's services. The plans for this area are based on the principles of delivering quality services that provide demonstrable value for money. The focus will be on procuring services against outcome measures and benchmarking services with best practice in comparable areas. The care pathways designed will reflect the intent to avoid admission to hospital and to provide support and advice to allow children to be cared for in the community, or close to home; advocating care that reduces interventions where appropriate, such as normalising birth and reducing unnecessary paediatric admissions. There is a focus on prevention and providing universal, accessible services with targeted care appropriate to the needs of the individual
How can you get involved:
Patients can get involved by enquiring about our Patient Reference Group. This group helps us shape our services by answering questionnaires on our service electronically. To join please pick up a registration form from the Medical Centre or select patient participation group from the right hand menu side of the page and click on the link patient reference group.
We have a group of midwives called ‘Willen’ team. Together they aim to provide you with quality care and support during your pregnancy, birth and post-natal period.
As babies can arrive at any time, they aim to provide cover for each other. However, if you cannot contact Lisa please contact the labour ward at Milton Keynes Hospital on 01908 660033.
