The presentation recognises the Trust's ongoing commitment to education and training across all areas, with over 40 facilities staff this year successfully gaining qualifications in their specific areas.
The staff who received their certificates worked in cleaning, catering, estates management, patient transport, the post room, the laundry department, switchboard and the staff club.
There were also two special awards presented to Sean Rice, Laundry and Linen Services and Mike Jones, Estates Technical Services for their Outstanding Contribution to Training and Development within the Facilities Directorate.
Ron Perry, Director of Facilities said: "Team work is an essential part of the way in which we strive to provide the best possible care for patients at Salisbury District Hospital. Our Facilities staff have an invaluable role to play as they ensure that our wards, units and departments are clean and well maintained. They also ensure that our patients have the facilities that they need when they come into hospital and that the staff who provide direct patient care have the support that they need to carry out their important role."
Mr Perry added: " Education and training makes a real difference to the quality of the services we provide and can have a tremendous impact on staff and their own personal development. I would like to congratulate them on their success and thank them for all their efforts." Ends
