Visiting suspended at Queen Alexandra Hospital (QA)


A stay in hospital can be a daunting time for anyone whether it is for a short or long time. But having someone with you can help you recover and make you feel more at ease.

Keeping in contact with friends and family is important to patients. It is recognised that a balance is needed between maintaining that contact and allowing for rest and recuperation. In response to feedback from patients, families and carers wards and departments have local guidelines about visiting times so please do check before visiting. 

Visiting suspended at Queen Alexandra Hospital (QA)


At Portsmouth Hospitals NHS Trust, we are proud to provide expert, compassionate care.

We are here for our local population of about 675,000 residents across Portsmouth and south east Hampshire and care for many people beyond, including providing some tertiary services to a catchment area of more than 2m people.

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.

SOPs and Templates

Last updated: 27 January 2020

This section controls all our issued Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs), templates and guidance documents.

Any amendments or changes to a document will result in it being re-issued and recorded with a new version number. Please check before use any document that it has not been superseded. We have issued all of our SOPs with an appended training record template, which you can use to record your training in that procedure.

As we have already completed the details of the document in the record you can simply print and detail any training undertaken; then file with your training records. Training may be self-directed or delivered in a training session.

Please remember that whenever you download a document from this site it becomes uncontrolled and so you must always check before use that it has not been superseded.
