The Critical Incident at Salisbury District Hospital was stood down at 4:55pm on Friday, 15th July. However, we continue to encourage our local community to help reduce pressure on the hospital, and only attend A&E if they are experiencing a life threatening condition. Alternatives to A&E include the Salisbury Walk in Centre and NHS 111 online and by phone. For minor illness local community pharmacists can provide advice and a range of over-the-counter medicine and treatments.
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.
