Patient action team report declares the food on offer at hospital is ‘excellent’

Have your say

HOSPITAL food has long been criticised for being tasteless and unappealing - but this is no longer the case at Grantham Hospital, according to its managing trust.

United Lincolnshire Hospitals NHS Trust has released details of a report published by a Patient Environment Action Team (PEAT) into the quality of meals in the county’s hospitals.

According to the action team, the food served to patients under the care of the hospital is “excellent”.

Meanwhile, environment and privacy and dignity were also assessed, both categories gaining a “good” grade.

Director of facilities management at ULHT, Mike Speakman, said: “We are particularly pleased to find that all our hospitals have been given an ‘excellent’ rating for the quality of food provided.

“This reflects the work of the catering teams and the increased focus on protected mealtimes, meal service and the overall dining experiences of our patients.”
