Messages for loved ones and keeping in touch

We recognise the impact that a long stay in hospital can have on families and the importance of maintaining strong communication.  Our ward staff are keeping in touch with patients’ next of kin directly and our Patient Advice and Liaison Service (PALS) can help pass on personal messages from family and friends.

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.

Petersfield Urgent Treatment Centre

Last updated: 03 October 2019

The Petersfield Minor Injuries Unit recently changed to an Urgent Treatment Centre (UTC) on 1 June 2021 to meet the new national standards. This means the service are able to treat a wider range of conditions and is open 12 hours a day, every day and all year round between the hours of 8am to 8pm. 

The UTC is an alternative to the Emergency Department for both children and adults. It provides treatment for minor injuries and illnesses that are urgent, but not life threatening. 

We can help with problems such as:
• Sprains and strains  
• Suspected broken limbs
• Minor head injuries
• Minor scalds and burns
• Skin infections and rashes
• Eye problems
• Feverish illness in adults and children
• Abdominal pain
• Emergency contraception

Accessing the service:

Patients are encouraged to call 111 first before arriving at the UTC as they will be able to take note of your symptoms and advise you on the best service to help you. If you need to be seen at the UTC, please book an appointment via NHS 111 as this will reduce your waiting time on site. 

Patients who go directly to the UTC without calling 111 will be clinically assessed by a triage nurse or other health professional and would only be prioritised for treatment over booked appointments when clinically necessary.
