SDH Nature Guide


The SDH Nature Guide written by Salisbury District Hospital staff member James Macpherson, sponsored by Salisbury Hospital League of Friends, and designed by ArtCare is an inspiring guide to the wildlife of Salisbury District Hospital and the surrounding area. The booklet provides a month by month look at the wide variety of flowers, plants and animals around the site, together with a detailed description and background information about each. As well as informing staff, patients and visitors about the wonderful array of flora and fauna on their doorstep, the booklet also aims to engage support for preservation of the site’s biodiversity.

Author James Macpherson said, “This is a rare and special habitat with which southern England is particularly blessed… and which during my frequent walks around the SDH site I have been able to enjoy on a daily basis.”

Copies are available to purchase from the League of Friends shop in the hospital’s main reception. Why not take a break from work and explore the area yourself? Or visit our Wellbeing page for more creative activities that you can do at the hospital or at home.
