Our Strategy – Working Together, Improving Together

Our strategy sets out our vision, values, strategic aims and most importantly, how we will deliver against these ambitions for our patients, communities, and people in the future.

It is not just a document, it is for and about everyone at PHU, building on what we have achieved with a renewed focus on continuous improvement and the need to continue to work together and improve together to achieve our goals. 

A full copy of the strategy can be downloaded here.

Changes to routine blood tests at Queen Alexandra Hospital

In order to help reduce overcrowding in the waiting room, changes have been made to how we carry out blood tests at QA Hospital.

 

We are now operating the blood clinic on an appointment only system.

Outpatient blood tests will only be carried out at QA if the sample needs to be immediately taken to the labs. Your GP practice will let you know if this applies to you, and you will need to book an appointment before attending.

 

This clinic is open from 7.45am to 4.30pm, Monday to Friday.

If you need to have a blood test, please call 07546760609 to book an appointment.

 

You can also book at several other clinics locally.

 

These are:

St Mary's Community Health Campus

7am - 2.15pm, Monday and Wednesday.

7am to 1.15pm, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday.

Walk-in service

Gosport War Memorial Hospital

Please make sure you attend at your appointment time. Please do not bring anyone else with you unless you need them to attend to support you with your care. Thank you for your understanding as we continue to take the necessary steps to help you, your loved ones, individuals and teams stay safe

If you are experiencing a high temperature or a new persistent cough please do not attend your blood test. Instead follow the Government guidelines to self-isolate for 7 days. If you live with someone who has symptoms, you’ll need to self-isolate for 14 days from the day their symptoms started and please do not attend your blood test.

If your symptoms worsen or you need help, please visit the NHS 111 online service.
