"Salisbury should be a model Hospital to others in..."

About: Salisbury District Hospital

What I liked

Everything.

I was admitted to Tisbury / CCU via A&E.

I had a side room to myself due to being MRSA positive - it was clean, well equipped and warm. The staff were the best hospital staff I had encountered. A huge thanks go out to the Night team, especially one who looked after me overnight. She took the brunt of my miserableness after being woken every few hours for medication - thank you.

They were all very respectful, caring and understanding.

What could be improved

Honesty - nothing to do with the hospital or the staff, however;

The cost of the TV / Internet services. That was very expensive.

Get another car park pay point in the actual car park. Every time my visitors left the single machine in the car park was faulty and they had to return into the hospital to pay!

Anything else?

I always chose to go to Salisbury over any other local hospital.

Response from Salisbury District Hospital

Thank you for the positive comment about your care on Tisbury Ward/Coronary Care Unit and in our Accident and Emergency Department. This has been forwarded to staff in those areas. You have also raised several points under the 'what could be improved' section. The first has been passed on to the company that provides the TV/ Internet system, so that they are aware of your comments. The second regarding an additional car park pay point has been raised with the facilities department for consideration. In the meantime, please accept our apologies for the inconvenience the faulty pay machine caused you on that day.
