Chief Executive Peter Hill is to retire in early 2017, having spent 38 years in the NHS.
Peter Hill says: “I am incredibly proud of what we have achieved over the years, whether it be the success of bringing the Salisbury General Infirmary, Newbridge Hospital and Odstock together on one site in 1993 or more recently securing the Community Services contract, which will provide more joined up care for our patients. So many of our achievements over all these years wouldn’t have been possible without the support of our staff and that of our local community.”
“I am also proud to have led an organisation that puts our patients first, values our staff and sees itself as an integrated and important part of our local community. We have always punched above our weight and, in handing the reins over to a new Chief Executive, I have every confidence that our hospital will continue to thrive and provide the very best care that we can for our patients.”
Mr Hill added: “It will be difficult for me to leave the organisation that I love. Salisbury District Hospital is a very special place to work and I will miss the hospital and all of our staff that make our hospital what it is today. However, after 30 years’ loyal service to Salisbury I feel that this is the right time for me to retire and I know that our brilliant 4,000 strong team of staff will respond positively to my decision.”
