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.

Endometriosis team at QA run interactive course for trainees

Date: 01 September 2021

Endometriosis course

The endometriosis team at Queen Alexandra Hospital recently held a two-day, face-to-face interactive course on advanced laparoscopic surgery for trainees, combining live surgery and pelvic training. 

Laparoscopic surgery provides a surgeon access to the inside of the abdomen and pelvis with small incisions in the skin with the aid of a camera. 

The team performed a live surgery for severe endometriosis with a discoid bowel resection and demonstrated the strong collaboration they have with the colorectal and urology teams. Participants had the opportunity to ask questions and learn techniques for ureterolysis, anatomical dissection, suturing and technical aspect of bowel resection.

Nadine Di Donato, consultant gynaecologist at Portsmouth Hospitals University NHS Trust, said: “All of the participants loved the pelvic trainer session and the endometriosis team put a lot of effort into organising the course. I want to say a massive thank you to everyone involved in making the course a success.”
