Heart patients

The Stars Appeal works to ensure local heart patients receive the very best possible care. We support a range of cardiac services at Salisbury District Hospital including, the Cardiac Suite, Tisbury Ward Coronary Care Unit, Cardiac Investigation Unit, the Heart Clinic and Cardiac Rehabilitation.

How much we’re aiming to raise this year:
£20,000

How the Stars Appeal makes a difference:

  • Advanced diagnostic, treatment and rehabilitation equipment such as the second lab in the Cardiac Suite and exercise equipment for rehabilitation classes
  • Projects that enable heart patients to be treated locally in Salisbury rather than having to travel to other hospitals
  • Enhancing the environment in which cardiac patients are cared for, for example with furnishings, décor and artwork
  • Additional rehabilitation activities and resources
  • Patient comforts such as free refreshments at rehabilitation classes
  • Companionship and social activities like trips away from the ward through our Engage project
  • Visits from hospital Chaplains
  • Free Wi-Fi
  • Stars Appeal water cooler and beverage trolley
  • Accommodation for patients’ loved ones
  • Specialist training and education for staff
  • Supporting staff wellbeing and morale
