Salisbury NHS Foundation Trust Staff Awards 2021 has begun accepting nominations to recognise and celebrate the Salisbury NHS Superstars of the past year, and this year two of the awards will be decided from nominations by patients and the public.
Stacey Hunter, our Chief Executive said, "It’s been a challenging year for everyone in our community, and that challenge has been hugely felt by staff at Salisbury Hospital as they rose to the challenge of responding to the COVID-19 pandemic and cared for the hundreds of patients who were admitted to hospital.”
In recognition of the impact the hospital’s staff has had on so many lives in our community, the Staff Awards will include The 'Patient Experience Award', decided only from nominations by patients and members of the public and the 'Compassion and Respect Award', based on nominations from staff and patients.
The ‘Patient Experience Award’ is for the team or individual that has made a significant impact upon improving the patient experience, either for an individual patient in their work area or for the Trust as a whole.
The 'Compassion and Respect Award' is for an individual or team that shows a genuine concern and compassion for others and is interested in others to help meet their needs whilst providing the best possible quality of care. They treat people as valued individuals and strive to put the needs of others before their own, taking into account principles of equality and inclusion.
Information on the criteria for the awards can be found here.
The deadline for nominations is 6th August. To nominate, please complete the nomination form.
The winners will be announced at an awards ceremony at Salisbury Cathedral on 23rd September.
Stacey Hunter concluded, "It's been a year like no other and we hope that we can provide an awards event that acknowledges the incredible work of our staff over the past year."

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.
