Due to a continuous and rapid rise in the number of patients being cared for at Salisbury District Hospital that have tested positive for COVID-19 the difficult decision has been made to immediately suspend all visiting except for those receiving end of life care and those patients with special needs.
Anyone planning on visiting loved ones at Salisbury Hospital should contact the relevant ward in advance and discuss alternative ways to keep in touch. This decision has been made to protect patients and staff and support the safe operating of the hospital.
Access for partners to support mothers during labour remains unchanged and partners can attend with mothers for some clinics and for limited periods on the post-natal wards.
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.
