The Salisbury Hospital League of Friends was established in 1954, the main object of which was to provide and complement facilities for the patients, visitors and staff as well as healthcare services within the local area. Our focus is to raise funds for small projects that make a big difference to patients and visitors, but which fall outside the budget of the hospital.
Formed in 1981, the Salisbury Hospice Charity jointly funds palliative care services with the NHS. Through its activities it has funded the building of the Hospice and several subsequent extensions and refurbishments. It is committed to raising £1.5 million each year to maintain and develop the services. In some cases it is the sole funder of a service or activity.
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.
