New switchboard system being rolled out

From Tuesday 22 March, University Hospitals Plymouth NHS Trust is rolling out a virtual switchboard.

When you call our main phone number (01752 202082) you will no longer go through to the switchboard team and will instead connect to the virtual system. 

You will be prompted to say the name of the person or department you wish to speak to. The system recognises the name and confirms it before it starts to dial. To stop the number being dialled say ‘cancel’. This way your call will be directed to the right person quicker.

If you find that the name of the person or department you require is not recognised by the system after two attempts, it usually means that the name is not in the directory. You will then be transferred to a switchboard operator, who will be able to help you with your enquiry.

We would welcome your feedback as this is essential to make the system a success. Please complete this quick survey

Learn from ExcellenceSay Thank You and help us to ‘Learn from Excellence’

We know that our staff can make a positive impact on the patients, families, friends and carers that they come in to contact with. If you would like to say thank you or pay a compliment to one or more staff members, or inform us of a positive experience that you have had within the Trust, then please click here.

When a staff member is nominated through this system, they receive a thank you card containing your exact words and if you would like, your name. The card ensures that staff feel valued and thanked for their actions and encourages them to continue providing similar excellent patient care. Hearing about your experience of where things have gone well is also helpful to the wider Trust, as we can learn from the examples they set.
