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.

PHU joins partners in signing Green Charter and launches their own Green Plan

Date: 21 November 2022

To coincide with the international focus on sustainability and climate at COP27 we have this week published our first Green Plan. The Green Plan sets out our role in the NHS’s goal to become net-zero carbon and address the challenge of climate change. On Friday we joined partners from across Portsmouth to sign the new Green Charter making a public commitment to improving our environmental performance.

Mark Orchard, Chief Financial Officer, attended an event with the council on Friday 18 November, which saw the launch of their Climate Change Strategy

The Climate Change Strategy details the council’s goal to become a “net zero carbon” council by 2030 and support the city on the same journey. The Portsmouth Green Partnership Charter is a key part to achieving this goal to support and promote environmental sustainability in Portsmouth.

PHU will work alongside their partners to contribute to securing an environmentally sustainable future for Portsmouth by reducing carbon emissions and operational waste, supporting local biodiversity, and empowering and supporting those living and working in Portsmouth to make greener decisions.

Mark Orchard, Chief Financial Officer at Portsmouth Hospitals University NHS Trust, said:

“We are very proud to be part of the of the Portsmouth Green Partnership Charter. The NHS accounts for 5% of the national carbon footprint and health services across Hampshire and the Isle of Wight emit over 1 million tonnes of cardon dioxide each year alone. We have recently published our first Green Plan setting out our ambitious agenda that includes transformation in our clinical pathways, prescription advice and buying differently. The charter is our commitment to working in partnership across Portsmouth to deliver on this important agenda.”

As part of this work, we are excited to launch our own Green Plan, more information can be found on our Sustainability page
