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.

Pride of Portsmouth Awards 2021: nominations now open

Date: 21 September 2021

POP awards

Portsmouth Hospitals University NHS Trust’s (PHU) annual Pride of Portsmouth Awards are a great opportunity for colleagues and members of the public to recognise the fantastic work taking place within the Trust.

While celebrations will again be held virtually this year, we still want to hear from you about how our individuals and teams have gone above and beyond to offer exceptional service and care for our patients, their relatives or carers, or their colleagues.

This year The News, Portsmouth is once again supporting the popular Patient’s Choice Award, which gives members of the public the opportunity to recognise the work of those who have cared for them and their loved ones.

If you would like to nominate a team or individual from PHU for the Patient’s Choice Award, please head to The News website.

The other categories will be nominated for by teams and individuals working within the Trust. These include awards recognising our close ties with the military as well as education and research.

If you are a member of staff at PHU and would like to nominate a colleague or team in one of the other categories, please visit the staff intranet for more information or follow this link.

The deadline for nominations is Sunday 17 November 2021.
