Hospital Food Review Announced By Government

 

Hospital Food

From The Yorkshire Times.

 

The government will work with the NHS to improve food quality in hospitals and provide consistently safe, nutritious and tasty food.

The review will consider:

1. How food can help aid faster recovery, taking into account the unique needs of vulnerable groups
2. Support from national bodies such as the Soil Association and National Caterers Association to source food services locally and reduce reliance on frozen or packaged foods
3.  New systems to monitor food safety and quality more transparently, including looking at how NHS boards are held to account
4.  How the NHS can be a standard-bearer for healthier choices for patients, staff and visitors
5.  More healthy food options for NHS staff, particularly for those working overnight shifts
6.  Sustainability and environmental impact of the whole supply chain
 ensuring quality and value for the taxpayer.
