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.

Coronavirus Hampshire helpline launched

Date: 06 April 2020

A Coronavirus Hampshire Helpline has been launched to provide information, advice and practical support to frail or vulnerable residents across the county.

Hantshelp4vulnerable is for those who are frail or vulnerable, do not have support from families, friends or their local community, and who need urgent assistance with practical issues.

This includes urgent assistance with essential food or household supplies, medication collections, or who are at risk of loneliness.

If you are in this group and need urgent food supplies, you can expect to receive a food box, typically containing:

  • Pasta
  • Cereal
  • Soup
  • UHT milk
  • Long life orange juice
  • Bread
  • Apples
  • Biscuits
  • Plus urgent household necessities if needed eg shower gel

Wherever possible, special dietary requirements will be met.

Hantshelp4vulnerable can be contacted on 0333 370 4000. Anyone can make calls on behalf of the person in need of support, or they can call the helpline themselves between 9am and 5pm, Monday to Friday.
