Improving the emotional wellbeing of older people in hospital

The Engage Programme is run by the Department of Clinical Psychology at Salisbury NHS Foundation Trust and is designed to support the psychological needs of older adults in hospital who often find the transition from home to hospital difficult. This may lead to problems such as anxiety and depression.

Engage uses specially trained psychology volunteers to help support the emotional wellbeing of patients during their stay in hospital.

Due to the Corona Virus Pandemic, the Engage volunteering programme is currently suspended.  Please keep an eye on this webpage for further updates or you can email enquiries to

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.
