Messages for loved ones and keeping in touch

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.

Beyond Boundaries programme shortlisted for Nursing Times Workforce award

Date: 31 August 2021

Portsmouth Hospitals University NHS Trust is delighted that our Beyond Boundaries Development Programme has been shortlisted in the Best Diversity and Inclusion Practice category for the Nursing Times Workforce Awards 2021.

The career development programme was co-created with ethnic minority staff to support career development for ethnic minority staff.

Ruth Dolby, equality, diversity and inclusion lead, said: “Our Trust’s ambition is for our workforce to be inclusive and representative of the community we serve, leading to improved patient outcomes, higher levels of staff satisfaction and a positive working culture.

“It was key that this programme made a difference to life at PHU and the feedback we have received from participants has been amazing. One of our nurses said it had completely changed her life.

“We know there is more work to do and every cohort of participants is vital in reviewing the effectiveness of the programme to highlight areas for future enhancements.”

The Nursing Times Workforce Awards recognises those who make a difference in recruitment, staff retention, wellbeing and inclusion.

The full list of finalists for this year’s awards can be found on their website. 

Winners will be announced at a ceremony on Wednesday 17 November 2021.
