The Department of Clinical Science and Engineering provides clinical engineering and physical science input and advice into healthcare in Salisbury NHS Foundation Trust and across the wider community. Comprised of 5 services and supported by an administration team, it is multi-disciplinary in nature and works closely with other departments in the hospital to deliver services in the fields of rehabilitation and diagnostics. A wide variety of patient groups are seen, including both in-patients and out-patients, and many have complex conditions and disabilities requiring specialist input. The five clinical and scientific services are:

  1. Medical Engineering
  2. Orthotics
  3. Clinical Neurophysiology
  4. Medical Physics
  5. Research and Training

The department sits within the Clinical Support and Family Services Directorate of the hospital and is led by a Consultant Clinical Scientist. There is strong collaboration with other NHS Trusts, with commercial and industrial partners, with professional and regulatory bodies and with universities on research and postgraduate student projects. Excellent links exist between the department and Odstock Medical Ltd. [OML], an NHS-owned company based on site delivering the FES clinical service.

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.
