STAFF at Salisbury District Hospital’s Laverstock Ward have won a Hero Award for the outstanding medical and nursing care they have given to military patients.

Doctors, nurses, therapists and support staff in plastic surgery and on the Laverstock Ward provide a wide range of care to soldiers who have been injured in Afghanistan and Iraq. The Hero Award, from Help for Heroes, recognises their achievement in improving the quality of life for military patients.

Charity founder Bryn Parry said: “The whole ward has done fantastic work to help our recovering servicemen and women.

“Plastic surgeons Roderick Dunn and Alexandra Crick, supported by their amazing team of nurses, go beyond the boundaries of their job descriptions to look after the welfare as well as the health of their patients and we are so grateful for their support.”

Staff received their award at a special ceremony at Tedworth House Recovery Centre in Tidworth.

Peter Hill, interim chief executive at Salisbury NHS Foundation Trust, said: “I want to congratulate all the team for their achievement. I know that the pioneering surgery and level of care we provide here for our military patients is truly outstanding and all those involved fully deserve the recognition they have received from the charity.”
