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.

Help our QA Heroes appeal

Date: 15 April 2020

Like so many other hospitals and providers across the country we have been overwhelmed by the amount of support we have received from the communities we serve, particularly over the last few weeks.

We have had many fantastic donations including food and are so incredibly grateful for every single one of these offers, however as time goes by it is getting increasingly difficult for us to be able to distribute these across all the amazing individuals and departments at the Trust.

Many of you have got in touch over the last few weeks and asked what you can do to help, so working with the Portsmouth News who launched the “Help Your Hospital Heroes” campaign and Portsmouth Hospitals Charity; we have set up the Portsmouth Hospitals Thank You Appeal.

By donating, you will play a role in supporting our staff who are working around the clock in difficult circumstances and share your thanks with everyone working at Portsmouth Hospitals NHS Trust from doctors and nurses to porters and cleaners.

Any money raised through the appeal will be used to support staff wellbeing, while Portsmouth Hospitals Charity will work with colleagues to find the best way to spend any donations.

Anything we raise over and above what might be needed in the current climate will go towards helping support staff wellbeing in the future.

To donate, please visit the JustGiving page

Thank you to Portsmouth News for supporting this campaign and the Trust.
