Visiting suspended at Queen Alexandra Hospital (QA)


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. 

Visiting suspended at Queen Alexandra Hospital (QA)


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.

Mobile Screening unit - across the community

The Breast Screening Programme is subject to close scrutiny and has high standards set upon it. There is a Screening Quality Assurance Service (SQAS), with centers throughout the country that closely monitor the units in their area and ensure the rigorous quality assurance standards are maintained. The Breast Screening Service is also proud to be registered to ISO9001:2015. This is the International Standard for Quality Management which means that the service works very hard to provide an efficient service to the women of Portsmouth and the surrounding areas. We are subject to inspection visits twice a year by the British Standards Institution and to date they have not identified any major problems.
