Nurses, midwives and therapists at Salisbury District Hospital shared best practice, celebrated their achievements and highlighted improvements to patient care at Salisbury NHS Foundation Trust’s Putting PRIDE into Practice event.
The event, which was attended by NHS Improvement’s Director of Nursing for Professional Leadership, Jacqueline McKenna, centred on the national six key values of Care, Compassion, Communication, Courage, Commitment and Competence that influence the way patients are treated within the NHS. During the day there were seven team presentations and over 30 posters that illustrated the commitment of staff in providing high quality patient care.
Jacqueline McKenna said: “It was a huge pleasure to be at Salisbury. There were great examples of teamwork, improving care.”
Fiona Hyett, Deputy Director of Nursing said: “Our staff share a set of values and behaviours that ensure that they provide good quality, safe care, and that we continue to celebrate achievements and share best practice as widely as we can. This was such a successful event, which gave our nurses, midwives and therapists a real opportunity to showcase ways in which they have improved patient care.”
Lorna Wilkinson, Director of Nursing said: “I want to thank our staff for their outstanding commitment to the provision of good quality patient care, which was highlighted so well at this event.”
