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.

The difference between Organisers, Presenter and Attendees

When discussing personally identifiable information or other highly sensitive information in a formal manner, it can be useful to limit the roles of other members. By default, everyone is a presenter. This means they can:

  • Start or stop the recording of the meeting – this will show up in the meeting.
  • Admit people into the meeting from the lobby
  • Remove people from the meeting
  • Share content

The attendees option allows people to share voice and video and takes away the other rights so the presenter remains in control. The meeting organiser always has the same rights as a presenter

To control permissions, at the bottom of the meeting you are organising click on the Meeting options

 

 

In the who can present? option you can change from everyone to:

  • People in my organisation (anyone with a porthosp.nhs.uk) account
  • Specific People
  • Only me.

NB in the mobile apps you must select “see more” in the meeting and then choose “meeting options”.

If in the meeting someone needs to share content you can make them a presenter while the meeting is running. In the meeting select the icon for attendees to see the list and then choose the attendee and select “make a presenter
