Have your say

PHONE lines at Queen Alexandra Hospital will be unavailable for part of this weekend so an upgrade can take place.

The upgrade takes place between 3am and 7am on Saturday.

Below is a list of replacement numbers for that time period:

Switchboard can be contacted on (023) 9234 0220, (023) 9234 0221, or (023) 9234 0222, in the event of an emergency.

Women who would normally contact the maternity or community bleep holder for advice, or labour calls, are being told to contact the community pager number: 07770 233256.

In case of maternity emergencies requiring admission, call 07801 557907.

Portsmouth Hospitals NHS Trust, which runs QA, said that a business contingency plan is in place to ensure there is no disruption to service throughout that time, with staff informed and a bleep and emergency phone service in place.
