£74K For Maternity Unit
Milton Keynes General Hospital have been successful in their bid for a share of £25 million of government funding to improve maternity services.
Tracey Payne is Head of Midwifery at the hospital, she told Heart the money will be spent on the things pregnant women have asked for.
This includes a new birthing pool with extra monitoring equipment so that it will be accessible to women with a higher risk pregnancy.
Also on the shopping list are some new recliner chairs for dads so they're able to stay overnight with their partners.
As well as birthing aids to help women get into more comfortable positions when in labor.
Tracey hopes all this equipment will be in the hospital and ready to be used within the next three months.
Other hospitals that have received a share of the funding include Northampton General Hospital, Bedford Hospital and the Lister Hospital in Stevenage.
Heart spoke to an 82 year old man who was threatened and had his wedding ring stolen during a burglary in Milton Keynes.
One of the attackers is believed to have had a saw.
