Awards for hospital staff

Salisbury Journal: Awards for hospital staff Awards for hospital staff

SALISBURY District Hospital staff have been rewarded for their professionalism, commitment and the way in which they have improved services for patients as part of the hospital’s Striving for Excellence Awards.

There were 10 categories and nominations were made by patients, staff and volunteers, with members of the public voting for the winners in the Service Improvement categories.

Winners and the highly commended were presented with certificates and flowers by chief executive Peter Hill and chairman Luke March at a ceremony held last week.

“I’ve seen first-hand the professionalism and commitment of our staff in providing the very best care for our patients and I’m proud to be able to give our staff the recognition they deserve through our Striving for Excellence Awards,” said Mr Hill.

“At a time where we have seen several high profile examples of poor care in other parts of the country, it’s essential that we take opportunities like this to celebrate the achievements of our staff and reflect on the excellent work that they do for our patients.”

Mr March added: “Our staff continue to provide the very best care to our patients and I know the enormous gratitude and respect that local people have for them. I am constantly impressed by the innovation and pride of our staff which is highlighted so strongly through these awards and the day-to-day work that they do within the hospital.”
