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.

Personal, Fair and Diverse NHS

Last updated: 03 December 2019

The long-running Personal, Fair and Diverse campaign has around 5,000 champions across the NHS.

We are passionate about an NHS with patients at its heart, care about working in an NHS which is fair and accessible to all, and believe that diverse workplaces make organisations better - this is why Portsmouth is a personal, fair and diverse champion.  

A personal, fair and diverse NHS is one where:

  • everyone counts
  • services are personal, designed to give patients what they want and need
  • fairness is built in so that everyone has equal opportunities and treatment
  • the skills and experiences of employees from all backgrounds are used and valued
  • people can choose the services they want and have as much support as they need
  • everyone is treated with dignity and respect, and when they complain - we listen and put things right
  • talent flourishes and nothing stops people going as far as they want
  • we are accountable and patients are informed and have more control
  • care doesn't stop at the door, but helps people live healthier lives
