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.

What do the mums say

Last updated: 03 June 2020

Portsmouth Maternity Centre


"The midwives that delivered my baby were fantastic and a credit to the NHS"

"I had the same midwife for my ante natal care and delivery which made me feel very supported, calm, confident and safe"

"My midwife was very nice and took time to explain issues with me"

"My midwife and training midwife were brilliant and gave me all the support I needed"

"If I had any problems I could just ring my midwife for help and advice"

"All my appointments were kept and on time and all my questions were answered"

"Everyone during my labour were caring and supportive"

"Midwives throughout labour were fantastic"

 

Queen Alexandra Hospital


"My partner and I would like to thank the staff on the Ante Natal Ward and wards B8 and B5/6. From the moment we walked into the hospital I, and more importantly my partner, felt completely at ease and informed of what was happening and going to happen leaving us to concentrate on my partner’s labour. The condition of the hospital was immaculate and we felt that every member of staff was there for us even though they had other patients to deal with. During labour we were given plenty of information and the much needed reassurance during this stressful, emotional time.

The service and care was exceptional and our son and mother had to stay in due to concerns the staff had and although staying in hospital is never easy the time spent there was first rate and every step and care was taken to ensure that our stay was as stress free as possible. The QA has completely changed our minds on NHS Trusts and would recommend the maternity department to anyone."

"VERY impressed with Queen Alexandra, loved the large delivery suites"

"The anaesthetist I had was excellent, she kept myself and my husband informed and put us at ease, as did the scrub nurses and theatre midwife"

"All staff were lovely and friendly"

"Diabetes midwives were fantastic"

"Help from supervisor was fantastic, helped with my tears and made me feel cared for"

"The Grange was excellent, the midwife gave me the personal touch, I felt looked after and comfortable"

"Excellent, couldn't fault the care I received from my midwife. It was especially useful to have access to the care at Grange 24/7"

"The Grange is brilliant. Special thanks to my midwife for caring professionalism and warmth"

Very satisfied with the care provided at the Grange"
