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.

Training, Research & Development

Last updated: 23 June 2021

Training and RD
 

Portsmouth Medical Physics department is an accredited centre with a long and successful history delivering scientist training. There are essentially two career pathways within Medical Physics: Scientist or Practitioner (also known as technologist). Training may be delivered as part of the national training schemes which are Scientist Training Programme, Practitioner Training Programme, Higher Specialist Scientific training. Alternatively trainees may work in the department and train on the job. The specialisms covered by the department include Radiotherapy Physics, Radiation Safety, Imaging with Ionising Radiation (Nuclear Medicine and X-ray Imaging). Job opportunities are advertised through the www.jobs.nhs.uk website. 

For more information on career pathways and training schemes see www.nhscareers.nhs.uk. For more information on the role of physics in medicine see www.ipem.ac.uk.

Department contact Angela Blay.

The Medical Physics department undertakes a variety of research and clinical development, both in-house and in collaboration with other hospital departments, international hospitals, universities, NPL, radiotherapy trials, commercial companies, etc. Several members of staff have undertaken MSc and PhD programs with appropriate research projects.
