Paediatric Consultant Dr Chris Anderson won this year’s Patient Experience Award. This award is chosen by members of the community and was presented at Salisbury NHS Foundation Trust’s Staff Awards ceremony, held last week.
He won the award for often going above and beyond, and his ability to effortlessly coordinate with his team whilst maintaining the dignity of and respect for his patients.
This is a special award with nominations from patients and other members of the public for hospital staff who have made a significant impact upon improving the patient experience, either for an individual patient in their work department or for the wider Trust.
Chief Executive Stacey Hunter said: “The Staff Awards are a significant event in our annual calendar. This year the patient experience award was enthusiastically embraced by our local community. The award offered the opportunity to applaud our hard-working and committed people and the efforts they make in providing compassionate care for our patients.”
