Hospital Catering - Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board 2012-13

1 Apr 2014 - 2:27pm

Hospital catering services are an essential part of patient care, given that good quality, nutritious meals places a vital part in a patient’s rehabilitation and recovery. Effective catering services are dependent on sound planning and co-ordination of a range of processes involving menu planning, procurement, food production and distribution of meals to patients.

In Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board (the Health Board), we reported our local findings in December 2010. At that time, we concluded that while catering arrangements in the Health Board demonstrate many aspects of recognised good practice, there is a need to strengthen planning and scrutiny and to address variations in standards at ward level and between hospitals.
