Staying with your child
We understand how difficult it can be for parents and children to be separated when a child needs to stay in hospital. We are pleased to be able to have the facilities for one parent to stay with their child. Each bed space on Sarum Ward has an area for parents so that they can sleep near to their child. We will supply your child with their meals when they stay with us though you are welcome to bring in food for them. We have a parents’ kitchen on the ward for drinks/snacks. Parent’s meals can be purchased from the hospital catering facilities. We have a shower exclusively for the use of parents.
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.
