Milton Keynes Hospital

Expansion of renowned medical school with state-of-the art building.


Beacon Planning provided planning consultancy services and secured permission for a purpose-built facility for up to 180 students of the University of Buckingham while they undertake their clinical placements at the hospital.

The state-of- the-art building is the result of a partnership between the hospital and the University of Buckingham Medical School. The centre includes a lecture theatre, simulated operating theatre, simulated ward, teaching rooms, study space and staff offices. The academic centre will also be used by Milton Keynes Hospital NHS Foundation Trust for clinical training of staff.

We managed the pre-application discussion with the Council and worked with the project team to shape the proposals. We prepared the Planning Statement and liaised closely with the Council to ensure any queries were satisfied and finally dealt with the discharge of conditions.


Planning permission was granted in November 2016. The building was opened by HRH The Duke of Kent at an official ceremony in February 2018.
