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 Clinical Skills Team at Queen Alexandra, Portsmouth NHS University Trust delivers clinical skills training necessary to up-skill the workforce.

We provide a variety of training to all staff at PHU. We liaise with the stakeholders at various levels and work closely with subject matter experts to ensure we provide up to date and comprehensive training programs.

We also collaborate with Military Personnel who support Clinical Skills Training. This is a partnership that maintains teaching skills and supports delivery of clinical skills for all.

OU Student Nurses Training ABG Workshop - Coming in 2023 Organisation Subject Calendar
Quality & Safety Academy Bowel Management ECG Workshop - Coming in 2023 NGT/Suction Workshop
Cannulation & Phlebotomy Basic Stoma Care Workshop ‘Sage & Thyme’ Communication Workshop Learning from Safety Events
Medication Safety Workshop Oxygen Therapy Workshop ‘Skills on Wheels’ Male Catheterisation

We pride ourselves in offering learners an environment where they feel safe and supported to develop their practical skills in a simulated clinical environment. We want participants to leave our sessions feeling confident and empowered to undertake the skill in practice (this is supervised until competence is achieved). We encourage questioning and promote curiosity, thus developing critical thinking skills necessary for a safe, skilled and efficient workforce. We encourage feedback and welcome new ideas and innovation to promote learning.

We work closely with the subject matter experts (SME’s) to ensure all content is up-to-date and aligns to PHU Policies and Guidelines.

The team offers training to all staff groups, registered and non-registered, whether it is learning a new skill or to refresh/update existing skills.
