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.

Celebrating International Day of the Midwife at PHT

Date: 11 May 2020

On 5 May 2020, we along with other Trusts across the country came together to celebrate International Day of the Midwife. As part of the celebrations, we asked some of our midwifery colleagues, as well as our Chief Nurse Liz Rix, about why they are proud of the team.

Helen Bland, Director of Midwifery at Portsmouth Hospitals, said: “Midwives play such an important part in a woman’s journey throughout their pregnancy and beyond. Over the last month, midwives have been particularly challenged in how they provide this care due to Covid-19. The care, support and guidance a midwife gives has never been more important than now, to ensure that all women and their families have a positive and safe experience of pregnancy, birth and early parenting. On International Day of the Midwife I’d just like to say how very proud I am of the midwives at Portsmouth Hospital, and throughout the world, for all the passion, hard work and dedication that they show on a daily basis.”
