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.

To mark Armed Forces Day, meet Keith Malcolm, Armed Forces Covenant Lead Nurse at PHT.

Keith’s role is very unique, a new role that was introduced since achieving our Veteran Aware hospital status in 2018. The role of the Armed Forces Covenant Lead Nurse is to ensure PHT adhere to the Armed Forces Covenant, providing the best care for our veteran patients, serving personnel and their families.

With over 30 years nursing experience and 15 years’ service in the Royal Navy, Keith is passionate about his role. He says: “We strive to be an exemplar of the best care for serving personnel, veterans and the military community, which include spouses, civil partners and dependent children of those who currently are or have served.

“We encourage feedback and are committed to learning from our veteran patients as well as their families, so that we can improve the quality of care. We also seek and act on the views of our former military staff to best support their individual needs.”

Thanks Keith! #ArmedForcesDay
