If you've had experience of using our services and would like to make a comment then please contact the Patient Advice and Liaison Service (PALS). Your views are very important to us and we would like to hear where you think improvements are needed or where things have gone so well that you would like to share your thanks or gratitude with the staff involved. When things have not gone so well then you can be sure that we want to hear from you, so please get in touch with PALS.
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.
We welcome and value your feedback and use the views you share with us in a number of ways to learn and make improvements as well as sharing best practice. Feedback can be provided in a number of ways.

The Fraud and Security Management Service is a shared service hosted by NHS Hampshire, Southampton and Isle of Wight Clinical Commissioning Group, based at The CommCen Building, Fort Southwick.
Portsmouth Hospitals University NHS Trust fully support the aims of the NHS Counter Fraud Authority in combating fraud and corruption committed within or against the NHS, to help maximise the resources for patient care. We regularly review our strategies so that we can reduce our exposure to fraudulent and corrupt activity. This includes meeting our obligations to appoint a Local Counter Fraud Specialist (LCFS) who is an accredited professional criminal investigator. The LCFS works with staff throughout the organisation to raise the awareness of fraud, introduce prevention and deterrence measures and investigate legitimate concerns.

We are based at CommCen Building, Fort South Southwick
You can report any concerns directly to Karen Travers the LCFS on 07881 954819 or by emailing email@example.com.
