The Catering Service at St. Mary’s Hospital has been awarded 5 stars for food hygiene following an unannounced food hygiene inspection by Environmental Health Inspectors from the IW Council.
The Full Circle Restaurant has recently had a full makeover and now diners can enjoy comfortable seating areas, both inside and outside and a brand new daily menu including hot food, a salad bar and sandwiches as well as delicious desserts and is open to members of the public as well as patients and staff.
Inspectors looked at the handling of food for patients, visitors and staff including how food is prepared and stored, the cleanliness of the facilities and how food safety is managed at St. Mary’s Hospital. All areas of the inspection met the highest standard of food hygiene.
Natalie Bennetts, Head of Facilities at the IW NHS Trust is proud of the 5 star rating and maintaining their high standard of food hygiene for patients, visitors and staff. Natalie said: “The Catering Team thrive on receiving excellent feedback on the service we provide and it is no different when it comes to our food hygiene rating.
“We produce over 1,000 good quality, nutritious meals every day from our traditional cook kitchen, so our food hygiene rating is important and is testament to the dedication of each and every one of our Catering staff. I am so proud that our patients, visitors and staff continue to enjoy the meals we provide.”
