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.

Summer Carpenter talks about her apprenticeship for National Apprenticeship Week

Date: 06 February 2020

This week is National Apprenticeship Week, which aims to highlight apprenticeships and the positive impact they have on individuals.

We are celebrating the week by introducing some of the Apprentices we have here at Portsmouth Hospitals NHS Trust (PHT).

Summer Carpenter is an Apprentice within the Rheumatology Department at QA Hospital, undertaking her Level 3 Business and Administration Apprenticeship.

No day is the same for Summer, where she can go from manning the reception desk, prepping patient notes ready for clinics to answering patient queries. 

Summer is really enjoying her apprenticeship so far. She says: “I am loving my apprenticeship and the people I work with. I have always been very shy, but being surrounded by such a supportive team I have really grown in myself.

“I look forward to the future and hope to make a brilliant career for myself within the NHS.” 

If you are interested in taking up an apprenticeship at PHT, Summer encourages you to go for it and take advantage of the many opportunities we have to offer.
