All strategic planning is underpinned by a number of values. These were developed in conjunction with staff and are used in their day to day work with patients, colleagues and stakeholders. There are four core values which staff should follow, which influence a further three key areas for each:
Patient-centred and Safe:
This centres on patient safety, team work and continuous improvement.
This focuses on being open and honest, efficient and acting as a good role model.
The expectation here is that staff will be action orientated, with a “can do” attitude and that they innovate, take personal responsibility and listen and learn.
We would expect staff to be welcoming, treat people with respect and dignity and value others as individuals.
Our staff at Salisbury District Hospital have long been well regarded for the quality of care and treatment they provide for our patients and for their innovation, commitment and professionalism. This has been recognised in a wide range of achievements and it is reflected in our award of NHS Foundation Trust status. This is afforded to hospitals that provide the highest standards of care.
