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.

Information for PHU staff asked to isolate

Date: 23 July 2021

Earlier this week, the government announced that some healthcare staff who are asked to isolate may in certain circumstances be able to be released to return to work.

The number of staff being contacted and told to isolate has been steadily growing and we want to do what we can within this guidance to reduce the impact this absence may have on our teams, our patients and services.

In-line with this guidance, we have introduced a process that involves a thorough risk assessment carried out on a case by case basis with patient and staff safety at the heart of it.

Following contact from Test and Trace or ‘a ping’ via the app, PHU staff should contact the staff support line via 023 9228 6496 or email. More information on the contact case will be taken and following a risk assessment by senior panel members, they will be informed whether the individual needs to continue isolating or can be released for work.

If you have any questions, please see the staff intranet, contact the staff support line, or speak with your line manager.
