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.

Webinar: communication in dementia care

Date: 19 May 2021

Time: 11:00 to 12:00

We know that as the population is ageing, there is an increasing number of people being diagnosed with dementia. 

At Portsmouth Hospital University NHS Trust, we are dedicated to providing the highest quality of care to patients with dementia and their families, to ensure they have a positive experience during their hospital stay. 

Joined by Andover Mind and Havant & Waterlooville Primary Care Network, we will be hosting a range of webinars as part of Dementia Action Week (17 to 23 May). 

Aimed at people living with or caring for people with dementia, the webinars will provide information and practical tips on a range of topics including diagnosis, nutrition & hydration, communication, legal advice and preparing for a hospital stay.

Topic: communication in dementia care
