A stay in hospital can be a daunting time for anyone whether it is for a short or long time. But having someone with you can help you recover and make you feel more at ease.

Keeping in contact with friends and family is important to patients. It is recognised that a balance is needed between maintaining that contact and allowing for rest and recuperation. In response to feedback from patients, families and carers wards and departments have local guidelines about visiting times so please do check before visiting.

At Portsmouth Hospitals NHS Trust, we are proud to provide expert, compassionate care.

We are here for our local population of about 675,000 residents across Portsmouth and south east Hampshire and care for many people beyond, including providing some tertiary services to a catchment area of more than 2m people.

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.

    Virtual Fracture Clinic

    Traditionally, all patients who sustain a broken bone (fracture) are given an appointment for a virtual fracture clinic (VFC). This often happens on the days following the injuries. These clinics were often busy and can be quite bewildering. As a result of VFC, A patient may have to attend the fracture clinic in outpatients multiple times during the resolution of their injury.

    Coming to a fracture clinic in the first few days after an injury is unnecessary in many cases, as no change is required to treatment. Visits in the first few days are often the most difficult as pain, swelling and immobility are greatest.
