Salisbury has been as named as one of the top hospitals in the country by leading national healthcare intelligence organisation, CHKS.
The awards are based on over 20 key performance indicators from safety, clinical effectiveness and health outcomes, to the efficiency of the organisation and overall patients’ experience and quality of care.
Peter Hill Chief Executive of Salisbury NHS Foundation Trust said: “CHKS has access to a wide range of information about the hospitals that they deal with and their performance, and these awards centre on the key factor that matters most to patients, the delivery of good quality, safe care.”
“This really is an outstanding achievement and one that reflects the hard work, commitment and quality of our staff. It shows our patients what they can expect when coming into hospital for treatment, and our commissioners and regulators the value of our hospital and our staff. While we celebrate this achievement it is essential that we continue to maintain the high standards that we set ourselves and I want to use this opportunity to thank our staff for their professionalism and support. “
Jason Harries, Managing Director, CHKS said: “These awards recognise outstanding performance in those areas which we believe are critical to delivering good patient care. We are delighted that Salisbury is one of our Top Hospitals 2015.”
