Nurses, midwives and therapists at Salisbury District Hospital had an opportunity to share best practice, celebrate their achievements and highlight improvements to patient care at Salisbury NHS Foundation Trust’s Putting PRIDE Into Practice event.
The local event was opened by Sarah Elliott, Director of Nursing for NHS South, with staff and governors enjoying a range of presentations and poster displays.
Lorna Wilkinson, Director of Nursing said: “It’s essential that all NHS staff have a set of values and behaviours that ensure they provide good quality, safe care, and that we continue to celebrate achievements and share best practice as widely as we can. This event was an opportunity for our nurses, midwives and therapists to showcase ways in which they have improved patient care. We had seven team presentations and over 30 posters submitted for the day, which illustrates the commitment of our staff in providing high quality patient care.”
Sarah Elliott, Director of Nursing for NHS South said: “It was excellent to see such a range of inspiring person-centred care in action at Salisbury District Hospital and to experience so many examples of staff working with compassion and creativity in order to meet patients’ needs.”
Lorna Wilkinson added: “This was a fantastic day and a real opportunity for our staff to share best practice and their achievements with colleagues. I want to thank them all for their outstanding commitment to the provision of good quality patient care, which was highlighted so well at this event.”
