Students from Stagecoach Performing Arts Salisbury and Amesbury developed and performed in a film to support Salisbury District Hospital. ‘Stay Safe With Three Simple Rules’ was filmed in the picturesque setting of The Cathedral Close. The film is being used to demonstrate to hospital staff and the public how to stay safe with handwashing, wearing face masks or coverings, and maintaining safe distancing.
Kristie Grant, Stagecoach Principal, said: “Our students had a fantastic time performing in the film and we are over the moon to have been given this unique opportunity to support our community whilst also enabling our students to do what they love doing in a safe and controlled environment. We are very happy to help Salisbury District Hospital promote the message that everyone needs to be mindful and take care to do everything we can to stop the spread of the coronavirus.”
Speaking about the need to keep protecting each other to help stop the spread of COVID-19, Fiona Hyett, Deputy Director of Nursing at Salisbury NHS Foundation Trust, said: “We are pleased that the children were so enthusiastic about taking part in this entertaining film with a serious message about COVID-19. It is very important for everyone to follow the guidelines on handwashing, the wearing of face masks or coverings and maintaining a safe distancing. These measures are for your safety as well as the safety of everyone.”
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.
