Over 150 people dropped in during the day to find out more about the different nationalities that work at the hospital and their cultures and food. As part of the event staff brought in their own national dishes and wore national dress or costumes from different parts of the world.
The day was set up by the hospital’s REACH (Reaching Equality Aspiring Confident Hope) group. This provides a forum where black minority ethnic (BME) staff can discuss issues that relate to their work and the services provided by the hospital.
Sandy Woodbridge, Chair of the REACH group said: “ Salisbury is a diverse community with people from all parts of the world living and working to enrich our society, and this diversity is reflected in the people that work at Salisbury District Hospital. This event gave us an opportunity to highlight the positive benefits of living and working in a multi-cultural society and raise awareness of the diversity we have within our own organisation.”
