TREES have been planted at Salisbury District Hospital for staff, patients and visitors to enjoy as part of the celebrations to mark the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee year.

As part of a Woodland Trust project to plant 6 million trees across the country, hospital consultants have given 17 trees to be planted on the green at Entrance B to create a lasting legacy to Queen’s Diamond Jubilee.

Deborah Mitchell, consultant dermatologist, said: “Hospital staff have a long history of providing medical care to the people of Salisbury which dates back to 1767.

“We wanted to mark the Diamond Jubilee as a significant time in our history. The senior medical staff hope that the trees planted on the green will be enjoyed for many years to come by the community which we serve.”
