What We Do MK Friends Trolley Round Charity Stall Fundraising Friends Shop and Café

Friends Shop and Café

​Due to the current situation, from the 19th March 2020 MK Friends Shop will only be open to NHS Staff. We apologise for any inconvenience to both patients and visitors but we need to make the running of the shop manageable as in line with government and NHS guidelines most of our volunteers have been required to self isolate as they are either over 70 or have underlying health conditions.

The ward trolley is suspended for the time being.

For NHS staff the opening hours for the MK Friends shop will be:

Monday - Friday: 8am to 4pm

Saturday - Sunday: 9:30am to 4pm

We are stocking groceries for staff, please ask if you need anything specific and we will do our best to find it.

Please note that you will need your ID badge to enter and sanitise your hands on entry and exit.

Thank you for your patience in these difficult times.

Friends of Milton Keynes Hospital & Community has been serving and supplying drinks, food and many other items since 1985. All the profits from the shop go to help support patients in the hospital and the local community.

What You Can Find in MK Friends Shop:

A wide range of items from freshly prepared hot and cold food as well as hot and cold drinks. Range of confectionery, toiletries, gifts, cards, newspapers, magazines and many other items.
