Catering Commended

The quality of the food served to patients, staff and visitors in our hospitals was highlighted in a recent episode of Landward – BBC Scotland’s food and farming programme.

The team filmed some of the local producers who supply fresh food to the hospital kitchens and interviewed some of the local catering staff and patients.

Every day the catering team produces 3,500 meals for patients, staff and visitors. Anne Davidson, Serco’s Catering Manager at Forth Valley Royal Hospital said: “The whole team is very proud of that the fact that 100% of our fresh produce is sourced within 50 miles of the hospital and we are committed to supporting local businesses.”

Restaurant staff at Forth Valley Royal Hospital also joined local producers to mark World Health Day with a give-away bonanza.

The hospital’s catering team helped dish out fresh fruit, vegetable and juice samples to patients, visitors and employees, along with supporting information on the importance of maintaining a healthy lifestyle.
