Salisbury District Hospital has again been given an Excellent rating for the hospital environment , food quality and privacy and dignity in a national report by the National Patient Safety Agency .
The report follows an assessment made earlier in the year by the Patient Environment Action Team (PEAT). The PEAT team include patient and public representatives and modern matrons who have a central role in maintaining and improving standards at ward level.
Hospitals were rated using a grading system of excellent, good, acceptable, poor or unacceptable. To receive an excellent grading, the Trust had to demonstrate that it provides high standards that almost always meet patient needs and generally exceed expectations.
Ian Robinson, General Manager in Facilities for Salisbury NHS Foundation Trust said: "When people come into hospital for treatment they want to know that the hospital is clean, that the food is appetising and nutritious and they are treated with privacy and dignity. We have again received a positive report from the National Patient Safety Agency following our PEAT audit and this report reflects the commitment of our staff".
