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.

Making your personal accounts safer using Two Factor authentication

Last updated: 20 January 2021

A secure password reduces the risk of unauthorised access, but determined criminals will use lots of tricks to try and gain the password. Generally this is something you know like a password combined with something you have like a phone. You may have these for your banking application, but most of the main applications like Amazon, Gmail, Hotmail, Facebook, Twitter and even some games consoles can use two factor authentication. However, for most of these accounts the option is off by default, so you will need to follow some instructions to turn it on.

The National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) has a web page https://www.ncsc.gov.uk/guidance/setting-two-factor-authentication-2fa that explains the process, the best options and why it is important and it also has a link for instructions for most of the popular applications.
