The Hospital Food Review – What is happening following the publication of the report
It is now some time since the Hospital Food Review was published, with its eight recommendations to improve staff and patient health and wellbeing through hospital food. The following outlines the progress that has been made since then.
Raising awareness on Nutrition & Hydration within a Healthcare setting is an important part of the quality of care for our patient, so as caterers, being fully involved in the planning and production of healthy, nutritious and balanced meals is vital.
The working relationships that we are building on, with Clinical teams, Dietitians, Speech & Language colleagues and Suppliers is giving opportunity to make a “real difference” to our patients every day of the year.
The Nutrition and Hydration 24/7, 365 Campaign shows that amazing work is going on throughout the NHS across the 4 Nations which enables us to build on a solid foundation.
“Good nutrition and hydration is at the heart of every HCA member and we will continue to do our best to provide it to patients, every day, week and month of the year, every year.”
