Messages for loved ones and keeping in touch

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.

Key achievements

Billy Jowett has been a consultant orthopaedic surgeon at Portsmouth Hospitals University NHS Trust since 2008. He treats a range of foot and ankle problems with particular interest in sports injuries, arthroscopic surgery, bunion surgery and total ankle replacement. He is also the general orthopaedic trauma on call rota, treating general orthopaedic trauma cases and complex foot and ankle problems. 

Billy graduated from Guy's and St. Thomas' Medical School in 1996 and he was a houseman at Worthing and then St. Thomas' Hospitals. Subsequently, he worked in the Emergency Department at St. Thomas' and taught anatomy at the medical school. He undertook his basic surgical training and his specialist orthopaedic training in the Wessex region.

His training was augmented by an AO trauma fellowship in Seattle, USA in 2002 and foot and ankle fellowships in Auckland, New Zealand and Melbourne, Australia in 2006/7 for which he was awarded an HCA International Travelling Fellowship. He was awarded an American Orthopaedic Foot and Ankle Society Travelling Fellowship in 2010, during which he visited world leaders in the field of foot and ankle surgery in New York, Baltimore, Philadelphia and Duke and Charlotte, North Carolina.

Billy has published and presented internationally on foot and ankle problems. He is a member of the British Orthopaedic Association as well as the British and American Orthopaedic Foot and Ankle Societies. In 2010, he set up the Wessex Orthopaedic Foot and Ankle Society with Mr. Heath Taylor, an orthopaedic consultant in Bournemouth. This is a forum that takes place every three months where complex cases from around the region are presented to gain opinions from the other foot and ankle surgeons in Wessex to ensure that patients receive optimal care.
