The Hospice is committed to delivering a quality service for patients and other Hospice users. Provision of excellent nutrition is vital for the care and well-being of our patients, staff and visitors (some of whom may have come long distances and/or are in the hospice for considerable periods). Our aim is to meet the individual needs of patients in a way that helps them to live as fully and as comfortably as possible, in what may be their final days.
The Service Provider shall therefore provide a high quality catering service which offers a range of appetising and nutritious food and drink to:
– Enable all hospice patients to have a choice, which reflects their dietary needs, and tastes 24 hours per day, 365 days per year. The flexible service should provide for changing needs;
– Meet the differing needs of visitors, staff, volunteers and other users in the Hospice, including the Coffee Shop;
– Cater for meetings, educational and other events in the Hospice.
