Milton Keynes University Hospital available on Google maps

Milton Keynes University Hospital has become one of the first hospitals in the UK to enable users to go inside the building when using Google maps.

Patients and visitors are now able to go within the hospital corridors before they arrive and proactively move across the site to find their intended destination. Using directional arrows, users can begin to build an idea of how they can access the department they require once they arrive at an entrance to the hospital. Everything that you see when using the service (including the recently introduced zonal wayfinding signage), will be what you will see when you are actually in the hospital.

For privacy and security purposes, the access on Google maps is only permitted to hospital corridors and walkways.
