"Table system on B50"

About: Nottinghamshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust / Mental Health Services for Older People – Inpatient

(as a service user),

Patients are getting more variety at mealtimes due to a table system which is more efficient, however, catering staff often put the main courses out too early meaning the food is often lukewarm.

Response from Involvement Team , Involvement & Experience, Nottinghamshire Healthcare NHS Trust We are preparing to make a change

The catering staff have been approached about making changes to serving arrangements. Unfortunately the workers do change much more frequently than anywhere else so we have put up an advice and suggestions sheet in the hatchway for them as a memory aid to our patients requests to improve the food service. I guess we will have to watch this space as to how it works out and if improvements are noticeable. The involvement team are visiting B50 in September to talk about changes since posting on the website so we can raise this issue again and see if things are changing.

Thank you for raising this. We appreciate your feedback.
