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.

QA’s neonatal unit first in the UK to receive Bliss baby charter re-accreditation for family-centred care

Date: 08 July 2020

The Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) has gained its re-accreditation under the Bliss baby charter, a fantastic achievement as it is the first unit in the UK to achieve it this year.

Following an assessment earlier in the year, the evaluators recognised the team as delivering high quality family-centred care.

Carol Buxton, Family Support Lead, says: “We are proud to have this recognition for the work that all of the team do, helping families through this difficult time, while their baby is in NICU.”

Bliss developed the Baby Charter to help neonatal units assess and improve the quality of care they provide. Through accreditation, Bliss recognises and rewards care excellence – with a specific focus on the delivery of consistent, high quality, family-centred care.

Well done to everyone in the unit for keeping up the good work!
