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.

Portsmouth Enablement Centre

Last updated: 06 July 2020

The Portsmouth Enablement Centre is situated at St Mary’s Community Health Campus in Milton Road in Portsmouth. There is a map showing you how to find us, on page 16 of leaflet number 3. The numbers below are as of February 2018:

Car parking facilities are available in the hospital grounds but, at times it is very busy, so please allow adequate time to get to your appointment.  There is a camera recognition system and charges are applicable.  There is a pay machine outside of main reception, so please pay prior to leaving the site.  Disabled car parking spaces are also available outside the centre (please complete paperwork for this when you arrive at Reception).

The centre provides a regional prosthetic service to people living in Portsmouth, Southampton, Hampshire and some areas of West Sussex.  It is one of over 40 such centres across the UK and is also one of nine enhanced Veterans Care Centres which provide specialist prosthetic and rehabilitation services for veterans whose amputation is attributed to their military service. An assessment for an artificial limb will be carried out at the Centre.

The centre is open from Monday to Friday 8.30am until 4.30pm, all year round, except for bank holidays.  Prosthetic clinics are held for both adults and children, who can be either upper or lower limb amputees, or both.
