Top hygiene rating for hospital

Rowley Regis Hospital has received a five star hygiene rating for its catering services.

The catering team has been awarded the rating by environmental officers from Sandwell council for operating at a high standard following its six-monthly inspection.

The service provides food to inpatients across Sandwell and West Birmingham NHS Trust, which also runs Sandwell and City Hospitals and Leasowes Intermediate Care Centre. The organisation produces around 5,000 meals a week across the sites including at various retail outlets.

Jane Owen, Head of Catering Services said: β€œI am very proud of the team and the services we provide to our patients, visitors and staff. I want to thank the staff providing the service across the Trust, as they all work extremely hard to maintain our high standards and this is shown through consistently achieving the five star food hygiene rating at our other sites too.

β€œIn addition to the patient meal provision across our sites, we also provide meals to Sandwell Day Nursery which is part of the Trust.”

Michael Best, Catering Manager at Rowley Regis Hospital, added: β€œOur catering departments consistently operate at high standards of food safety and cleanliness in compliance with relevant food safety legislation and guidelines.

β€œIn addition to these high standards we have adapted our working practices in line with the implementation of β€˜Natasha’s law’ (allergen labelling) and provided relevant evidence to prove due diligence.”
