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.

Shaping care for patients with dementia and their families at PHU

Date: 28 June 2021

Time: 08:00

we want to hear from you

At Portsmouth Hospitals University NHS Trust (PHU) we are dedicated to providing high quality care to patients with dementia and their families. We are in the process of developing a dementia strategy to help us shape the care for patients during their stay with us.

With the population aging and more people being diagnosed with dementia, we are seeing more patients coming into hospital with a diagnosis, with an estimated 25 per cent of beds occupied by someone with dementia. It is therefore essential that we have a plan that outlines the direction PHU is taking to provide the best possible care for our patients.

We want to hear from as many of you as possible to help influence our strategy. Perhaps you are a carer of someone with dementia or a local resident - we want to hear your thoughts. 

We have pulled together a short survey to share your views, which can be found by following this link. The survey closes on Monday 12 July.
