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.

Day 2 contains practical work so please ensure you are dressed in your uniform.

If your uniform has not yet been issued, then please wear scrubs and appropriate shoes, as if for clinical work, or you may not be able to complete the required practical elements of the course. In this case your manager will be made aware and you may have to re-attend the training.

All military personnel attending should wear working rig/uniform and you should wear footwear, which allows good ankle flexion.

Yours faithfully
