A CHILDREN’S doctor has been recognised for his efforts in treating young people – after being chosen by the community.
Paediatric Consultant Dr Chris Anderson won the 2023 Patient Experience Award at Salisbury NHS Foundation Trust’s recent Staff Awards ceremony.
A trust spokesperson said he won the award for ‘often going above and beyond’, and his ‘ability to effortlessly coordinate with his team while maintaining the dignity of and respect for his patients’.
The special award receives nominations from patients and other members of the public for hospital staff who have made a ‘significant impact upon improving the patient experience, either for an individual patient in their work department or for the wider Trust’.
Chief executive of the Trust, Stacey Hunter, said: “The Staff Awards are a significant event in our annual calendar.
“This year the patient experience award was enthusiastically embraced by our local community.
“The award offered the opportunity to applaud our hard-working and committed people and the efforts they make in providing compassionate care for our patients.”
