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.

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.
