Messages for loved ones and keeping in touch

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.

Portsmouth Hospitals NHS Trust is a designated Cancer Centre and serves a population of approximately 800,000 within the area of southern Hampshire. The centre is part of the Central and South Coast Cancer Network and has close links with the Cancer Centre in Southampton and the cancer units in Chichester and on the Isle of Wight.

The Trust treats over 3,000 new patients every year for the majority of cancers. Children with cancer and adults with some very rare cancers are generally referred to the specialist centres in Southampton and London.

Outpatient clinics, diagnostic services, day case and surgical treatments and inpatient services are all provided for patients with cancer at Queen Alexandra Hospital (QA). The Portsmouth Oncology Centre at QA has the latest linear accelerators that provide radiation therapy to cancer patients

Since March 2013 we have offered a new breast cancer drug which extends survival and stalls disease progression. The Trust also has extremely highly developed laparoscopic rectal cancer surgery, as well as endoscopic thyroid surgery, which provides a huge benefit in terms of patient experience and quality of life.
