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.

Totton Dialysis Unit awarded Team of the Month for August

Date: 20 September 2021

 

In the last six months the Totton Dialysis Unit has gone above and beyond to ensure some of our most vulnerable patients continued to receive care.

Recent challenges have meant the Totton team had to work additional hours, arranging patient slots, transport, staffing, liaison with contractors and stock ordering – while making sure patient treatment is delivered.

The whole team has pulled together, upholding PHU’s values of working together as one team, providing compassionate care for our patients.

This kind of care and compassion is what we pride ourselves on at PHU and is why the Totton Dialysis Unit has been awarded Team of the Month for August.

Chief executive Penny Emerit visited some of the team on Friday to present them with their certificate and enjoy a tour of the unit.

Congratulations to the team and very well deserved!
