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.

We need your say in the next phase of the development of our dementia strategy

Date: 11 October 2021

Portsmouth Hospitals University NHS Trust (PHU) is currently in the process of developing a dementia strategy, to ensure our patients with dementia and their families receive high quality care before, during and after their admission to hospital. We are now moving on to the next phase of the development of our dementia strategy and we need your thoughts.

Thank you to everyone who has shared their ideas so far and we hope you are able to see your thoughts and suggestions within the first draft, explaining our commitments of care across seven key areas.

Please review the first draft of our strategy and share your feedback via this link.

Your feedback is vitally important to make sure we get dementia care right for our patients and communities. You can read our delivery plan for the strategy here.

Lead nurse for dementia Emily Oliver will also be holding a webinar around the dementia strategy next Tuesday (19 October). She would like to hear your feedback, so please join her from 4pm to 5pm.
