SOLIHULL Hospital has reopened its catering department after a 13 week state-of-the-art upgrade to benefit both patients and staff.

The catering department’s central production unit (CPU) produces nearly six million food portions per year for the Heart of England NHS Trust, including Heartlands and Good Hope Hospitals and a number of external organisations. The unit now has additional space and a more efficient service.

Mike Towler, catering manager at the Hospital, said: “I am very pleased with the redesign of the unit. The whole catering team worked extremely hard to help the development go smoothly and efficiently. This upgrade, as well as the new pieces of equipment, will help us as we strive to continue to provide an excellent service for our patients and staff.”

In addition to the regular menu, the CPU also specialises in Halal, Afro-Caribbean and vegan meals. If you are interested in purchasing food from the Trust or would like to arrange a visit to the unit to discuss requirements, please contact Mike Towler on 0121 424 5439 or e-mail michael.towler@heartofengland.nhs.uk
