Staff rewarded for services to patients at Salisbury District Hospital

January 2018

The League of Friends are proud sponsors of the 2018 Striving for Excellence Awards to recognise the contributions made by the outstanding staff of Salisbury District Hospital. Staff have been rewarded for their professionalism and commitment and the way in which they have improved services for patients.

There were 13 categories in all, and award nominations were made by patients, staff and volunteers, with members of the public voting for the Salisbury Hospital League of Friends Customer Care Awards.

Cara Charles-Barks, Chief Executive at Salisbury District Hospital said, “Throughout the last year I have been overwhelmed by the commitment of our staff, their passion for our patients and the way in which they all work as a team to support each other across all of our services. Our awards reflect our core values and behaviours and give us an opportunity to recognise the fantastic contribution that they all make to our hospital, patients and the local community and highlight what staff are doing to provide an outstanding experience for every patient. The awards represent just a small sample of the fantastic work that takes place right across all our services each year and celebrate all that is good about our hospital and our staff. I want to thank our staff for all their efforts. I also want to thank the Salisbury Hospital League of Friends for fully funding our awards this year and their loyalty and commitment to us over so many years."
