Our values are how we work towards achieving our vision to provide an outstanding experience for our patients, their families and the people who work for and with us.
In recent months we have reflected and, with input from our staff, have further developed our core values and behaviours. These are the characteristics which define how our organisation works, and reflect how we want to be viewed by the communities we serve.
We have restated and refined our values so that they remain relevant and drive the way we work towards our strategic priorities as an organisation. We recognise the scale of our current and future challenges, so we have added a further value, Progressive. This reflects our desire and commitment to tackle future challenges and opportunities with positivity and a continuous improvement ethos.
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.
