We have 2 Recreational Assistants, employed since September 2013, to promote and participate in social activities with patients. They work flexible days around the patients’ needs. They organise events such as supper evenings; trips out to Rugby matches, picnic’s, trips to gardens and to the seaside.
The recreational service is offered to all patients staying in the Spinal Centre, either in groups or for individuals.
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.
