Food For Thought

Hospital meals may not be known for their culinary perfection, but listeners to the Coffee Club have heard how they're changing perceptions at Clatterbridge Hospital.

Presenter Phil Rostance has been sharing the news that Wirral University Teaching Hospital NHS Foundation Trust has been recognised in a national survey for the quality of its food.

The Patient Environment Action Team survey, which is carried out by the National Patient Safety Agency, assesses every hospital in the country.

The 2012 survey awarded Clatterbridge an "excellent" rating for providing the highest standards of food. This includes the choice, quality, quantity, nutritional value, presentation and temperature of food provided during protected meal times.

The hospital was also commended for privacy and dignity and providing a clean environment.

The excellent rating in the three key areas is down to the dedication, commitment and hard work of our staff who work tirelessly to consistently provide excellent health services and superb food - all in a clean environment for our patients. - David Allison, Chief Executive of Wirral University Teaching Hospital NHS Foundation Trust
