Messages for loved ones and keeping in touch

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.

Staff and members of the public are invited to join Portsmouth Hospitals University NHS Trust’s (PHU) Annual General Meeting (AGM), where we will be looking back at the challenges we have faced and our successes from the past year.

The AGM will once again be held virtually on Zoom and will take place on Tuesday, 5 October 2021, from 6pm to 8pm.

Penny Emerit, chief executive at PHU, said: “Alongside the rest of the NHS, we have continued to face unprecedented challenges over the past year in light of the COVID-19 pandemic. Working closely with partners across the region and nationally, as well as with our inspirational staff here at PHU, we have faced these challenges together and we will be sharing more on our response at the event.

“With the incredible support of our local community, the AGM will be a time to celebrate what we achieved during difficult circumstances. The event will also provide an opportunity to look forwards, and we are excited to be able to share our plans for our ambitious new emergency department. I hope you will be able to join us.”

Questions are welcomed in advance by emailing communications@porthosp.nhs.uk, or you can ask them during the event.
