Hospital provides high quality information
SALISBURY NHS Foundation Trust is continuing to provide high quality information about health and social care, according to an independent assesment.
The trust has retained the Information Standard, an accreditation given by external assessors from the Royal Society for Public Health.
The hospital has been judged as providing patients with information that is evidence-based, accurate and reader friendly.
Salisbury is one of 34 hospital trusts across the country to get the accreditation.
Katrina Glaister, quality directorate facilitator at the hospital, said: “The aim of the scheme is to reduce the potential for sub-standard health and social care information and ensure patients, public and health professionals know that the information they are using is reliable and can be trusted.
“While our patient information has initially been subject to an annual review, the Royal Society has now provided accreditation for a three-year period, highlighting a significant achievement for the trust and the standards we have in place here in Salisbury.”
