Staff and Visitors enjoy Cultural Experience at Salisbury District Hospital 

  Staff and visitors had an opportunity to experience the cultural diversity that exists within the hospital and enjoy a range of new culinary experiences as part of a cultural awareness event held in Springs Restaurant at Salisbury District Hospital.
 
 

  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.”
