Salisbury NHS Foundation Trust has opened nominations for its Staff Awards 2023. These awards recognise and celebrate individuals and teams working at and with the Trust who go above and beyond in their dedication to providing excellent patient care and quality services.
In 2023, there are two new awards. The Rising Star Award will celebrate an individual with less than five years’ experience at the Trust who gives up their time, lends their experience and delivers better services for themselves and others in their area. The Sustainability Award will honour an individual or team who has strived to implement sustainable change and works towards a greener future here at the Trust.
Patients and other members of the public can vote in the Patient Experience Award. This award is for the team or individual that has made a significant impact upon improving the patient experience, either for an individual patient in their work area or for the Trust as a whole.
Chief Executive Stacey Hunter said: “The Staff Awards are a significant event in our annual calendar and are enthusiastically embraced by our local community. They offer the opportunity to applaud our hard-working and committed people and the efforts they make in providing compassionate care for our patients.
“2023 is a special year for us. The NHS celebrates its 75th birthday and the 80th anniversary of our hospital. I encourage everyone who has had a great experience at the hospital to take this opportunity to tell us about it, as this feedback makes a real difference to our staff in so many ways.”
Information on the criteria for the awards can be found here.
The deadline for nominations is noon on Friday 28th July. To nominate, please complete the nomination form.
The winners of this year’s Staff Awards will be announced at an Awards ceremony in the Cathedral Close on Thursday 7th September.

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.
