"Health and Safety issues at Bassetlaw Ward B2"

About: Nottinghamshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust / Inpatient mental health care

(as the patient),

I write this with disgust I am currently on ward B2 Bassetlaw hospital. Last week I was given my meal, a salad and it contained a live caterpillar. The ward manager rang the canteen to complain but I have not received any kind of apology, the canteen have not spoken to me at all. Also cutlery very often still has food on it from not being cleaned properly. I am sure that this is a health and safety issue but nothing is being done.

Response from Jo Horsley, Adult Mental Health Service Manager - Acute services, Nottinghamshire Healthcare NHS Trust

Thank you for raising this issue for me, I'm pleased the ward manager contacted the catering department to make them aware but disappointed they have had no response. I will ask our matron and ward manager to speak to Bassetlaw hospital management and get back to you as soon as possible.
