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.

Appointments on Bank Holiday - Monday 19 September

Date: 14 September 2022

Monday 19 September has been declared a national Bank holiday to mark the date of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II’s State Funeral. While some services are reduced, in recognition of the Bank Holiday and to allow our staff pay their respects to Her Majesty and commemorate Her reign, we are continuing to provide more services than on a normal bank holiday.

 

All patients who have an appointment or procedure scheduled for Monday will be contacted this week by telephone, text message or email.

 

We understand this may be a difficult time for many people and we are working hard to ensure we can continue to provide the best possible care. We would like to thank all our patients for their understanding at this time. We are making provision for those patients already in hospital to be able to pay their respects and watch the funeral of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.

Please remember to call NHS 111 or visit NHS 111 online if you or your family need urgent medical help. Urgent treatment centres will run as normal throughout this bank holiday weekend. Patients with life-threatening illnesses should still attend our ED department.

We would once again like to share our deep condolences with the Royal Family for their loss.
