New support service launched at Milton Keynes Hospital
This is an exciting opportunity for us to work with the hospital staff to support unpaid carers within the hospital, and extend that support to the family once the person that they care for has gone home.
Our direct hospital telephone number is 01908 996076. There is an answerphone in operation, if we are out and about on the wards and departments within the hospital. Please leave a message and we will return your call as soon as we can.
Alternatively you can also call our main office on 01908 231703. We are sharing this space with Age UK MK. Currently the office is manned by both Carers MK and Age UK MK between the hours of 9.00am-4.00pm Monday to Friday.
MK Pharmacy First provides confidential health advice without needing to book an appointment. If you don’t pay for your prescription, the pharmacy can supply your recommended medicines free of charge.

New Young Adult Carers Service Launched
We are very excited to announce the launch of a young adult carers service in Milton Keynes. The service will provide new skills, individual and group support and social opportunities to carers aged 16 – 25 years. The project will be called ‘Same Chances’ as its aim is to ensure that young adult carers have access to the same opportunities as other young people their age. This work has been supported by funding from MK Community Foundation. If you would like any further information about this new and exciting service or would like to make a referral please call Carers MK on 01908 231703.
The Carers Discount Card is available to unpaid carers living in Milton Keynes. The card includes discount of up to 50% across many local and national businesses in Milton Keynes including food and drink, hair and beauty, household, legal, leisure and transport.
