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.

Today marks the 75th anniversary of VJ Day (Victory over Japan).

While VE Day (Victory in Europe) marked the end of the war in Europe in May 1945, VJ Day marks the day Japan surrendered on 15 August 1945, commemorating the end of the Second World War.

As a hospital with strong military links, we are introducing you to some of our colleagues at Joint Hospital Group South.

WO2 Kevin Godfrey, an Army Operating Department Practitioner, has served for 24 years. In that time, he has been deployed on operations to Kosovo, Sierra Leone, Northern Ireland, Iraq, Afghanistan and most recently South Sudan.

Kevin says: “I have been the lead for Military peri-operative practitioners in the Theatre department for the past two years. In that time, we have continued to work side by side with our civilian practitioners, training and developing our skills to remain ready for any potential deployment worldwide. 

“Working at QA Hospital has been a very rewarding experience, particularly the learning opportunities that present themselves when working closely with our civilian team members. This is a relationship that has strengthened during this challenging time.”
