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.

Portsmouth Hospitals NHS Trust recognised as one of the UK's top hospitals

Date: 07 August 2019

Portsmouth Hospitals has been named as one of the top 40 NHS Trusts in the UK.

The Trust, which runs Queen Alexandra Hospital in Cosham, was recognised by the CHKS Top Hospitals Programme which celebrates excellence in healthcare in England, Northern Ireland and Wales.

Mark Cubbon, Chief Executive, and Melloney Poole, Chairman, were presented with the Top Hospitals Award by Selin Sagra-Clarke, Senior Consultant at CHKS at Queen Alexandra Hospital (QA) in Portsmouth.

CHKS is a leading provider of healthcare intelligence and quality improvement services and its Top Hospitals Programme covers 148 Trusts in the UK. PHT’s award follows an independent assessment of evidence-based improvements PHT has made in a number of areas.

The Trust’s report shows PHT was among the best hospitals for many of the measures analysed, including better care for older patients with hip fractures and improved measures of hospital hygiene.

The Trust was better than average and improved in 2018 compared to 2017 in a number of areas, including rates of emergency readmission to hospital within 14 days and emergency readmissions of patients aged over 65 within 28 days following a hip fracture.

Mark Cubbon, Chief Executive at Portsmouth Hospitals NHS Trust, said: “I would like to thank CHKS for this award. We are committed to continually improving and ensuring our patients receive the best possible care. It is a great achievement to be recognised in this way as this award is evidence-based, and it is a big boost for our staff at The Trust.”

Moyra Amess, Director, Benchmarking, Assurance & Accreditation, Capita Healthcare Decisions, said: “The Top Hospital award recognises outstanding performance in those areas which we believe are critical to delivering good patient care. We are delighted that Portsmouth Hospitals NHS Trust is one of our Top Hospitals 2019.”
