The HCA is a national organisation, with 15 branches throughout England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland, with more than 250 hospitals represented in its membership. Our corporate patrons are valued members of the Association.

The Association leads on the promotion of professional standards that enhance & improve NHS Catering services supporting clinical requirements across the 4 Nations.

Corporate Membership is excellent value when you see the benefits that can be experienced. Some of the many benefits include:

  • The ability to meet formally and socially and forge links with Branch Members.
  • The ability to host Branch Meetings on company territory.
  • The ability to meet informally with Representatives from other sections of the Catering Industry.
  • The Opportunity to contribute, to help Branches of the HCA to develop.
  • The ability to develop and maintain an awareness of trends within the Hospital Catering Industry as a whole.

It is the company that becomes the Patron, which allows a company representative to attend every Branch of the Association.
