Minor concerns over Salisbury District Hospital care

Following an unannounced inspection at Salisbury District Hospital, minor concerns have been raised by the Care Quality Commission.

The key concerns included how quickly staff were able to respond to patients ringing their call bells and how soiled laundry was being dealt with.

However, the commission found the hospital did meet all essential quality and safety standards.

It also ruled that care was being provided in a safe, clean environment.

Peter Hill, Interim Chief Executive at Salisbury District Hospital said: "We are pleased with the report which provides a positive view of the hospital, our staff and the quality of care we provide for our patients.

"It is important that we don't stand still, and we will continue to work with our patients, staff and visitors to improve services and maintain the delivery of good quality, safe patient care."
