Messages for loved ones and keeping in touch

We recognise the impact that a long stay in hospital can have on families and the importance of maintaining strong communication.  Our ward staff are keeping in touch with patients’ next of kin directly and our Patient Advice and Liaison Service (PALS) can help pass on personal messages from family and friends.

During your stay in hospital you will meet a number of different members of staff.  All members of staff wear name badges, but if you are not sure who someone is or what they do, please feel free to ask them to introduce themselves and explain what they do. 

If you have any questions about your treatment, please ask a doctor or a nurse.

There are lots of opportunities for you to get involved with the Trust, from volunteering to attending our public meetings, our Annual General Meeting or our hospital open day which is held every year.

Media Enquiries and Communications

Last updated: 03 August 2020

Our Communications Team at Portsmouth Hospitals University NHS Trust (PHU) looks after all communications in and outside the Trust including media enquiries, PHU social media channels, communicating with staff and patients, coordinating filming, organising visits and events such as the open day, and stakeholder relations.

You can follow us on Twitter, FacebookYouTube and LinkedIn to keep up to date with the latest news and information.

 

Media requests

The Communications Team should be the first point of contact for all media requests. Our team works with the media to keep people informed and promote work being carried out at PHU.

All media enquiries including requests for interviews, photographs and filming must be made through the Communications Team and consent forms will need completing if a member of staff or patient is being filmed or photographed.

Under no circumstances may interviews, filming or photography be carried out on or around the hospital sites without the express permission of the Communications Team. If you need further information, or would like to arrange an interview, please contact us in advance.
