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.

Survey on Hampshire’s Non-Emergency Patient Transport Service

Date: 10 February 2020

People who use Hampshire’s NHS Non-Emergency Patient Transport Service (NEPTS) are being encouraged to take part in an online survey.

The survey is being run by NHS Fareham and Gosport Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) on behalf of the other CCGs across Hampshire and is available here.

Gosport GP Dr David Chilvers, on behalf of the CCGs, said: “This £11m a year service provides considerable benefit to those people who are eligible to use it because of their medical condition.

“We need to ensure that it continues to operate well into the future, but want to understand if improvements can be made to ensure its effective and efficient use for the people who are eligible for it and who rely on it.

“We would strongly encourage all service-users or their carers to please complete the survey. It will only take a few minutes of their time."

All patients are normally expected to make their way to hospital or outpatient clinics for their routine and non-emergency appointments.

The NEPTS service is provided for the minority of people registered with a GP practice who can’t travel to appointments independently on grounds of their medical condition only.

The survey will run until 17 February.
