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.

Meet Toby Edwards for National Apprenticeship Week

Date: 06 February 2020

This week is National Apprenticeship Week, which aims to highlight apprenticeships and the positive impact they have on individuals.

We are celebrating the week by introducing some of the Apprentices we have here at Portsmouth Hospitals NHS Trust (PHT).

Joining only two weeks ago, Toby Edwards is the newest member of the Communications Team and is looking forward to getting stuck in to his apprenticeship.

With an interest in journalism, Toby knew taking up an apprenticeship within the Communications Department would be an amazing opportunity and really guide him through his career path. He says: “When I came across this role I knew it would be perfect for me. I enjoy getting out and about talking to people and I have already been involved in a number of exciting activities.”

Although Toby has been here a short while, he feels he has already learnt lots of skills. “I have learnt lots already, from taking photographs, posting on social media to chatting with colleagues about exciting things that are happening around the Trust,” explains Toby. “I am really looking forward to gaining a qualification whilst being in the working environment.”

No day is the same for Toby and really encourages anyone thinking of taking up an apprenticeship to do so.
