The Southern Health and Social Care Trust have organised a ‘Come Dine With Me’ style event to mark ‘Nutrition and Hydration Week’ (16-22nd March).

Participants in the ‘Come Dine With Me’ event at Daisy Hill Hospital: Carol Murphy, Health Vising Manager, Anita Carroll, Assistant Director of Acute Services, Social Workers Hazel Quinn and Lesa Johnston, Dorothy Morton, Support Services Manager, Mary McKevitt, Ward Assistant and Raymond Mullan, Non Executive Director

Now an annual event organised by the Hospital Caterers Association, National Association of Care Catering and Patient Safety First – Nutrition and Hydration Week aims to promote the importance of food and drink in health and social care. Non-Executive Directors, Senior managers and clinical staff have had the opportunity to try a patient meal at Craigavon Area, Daisy Hill and Lurgan hospitals. Those taking part ordered from the normal menu given to patients to experience what it would be like to receive a patient meal at ward level. Following the meal participants completed a satisfaction survey which will be used by the Catering Departments for their continuous monitoring and improvement of the service. Stressing the importance of good nutrition in health and social care, Anita Carroll, Assistant Director of Acute Services for the Trust said, “Nutrition is an essential part of our patient and client care and we pride ourselves in providing safe, good quality meals as a vital part of rehabilitation and recovery. “Our main hospital kitchens produce around 21,000 meals each week for patients and staff,” Anita added.
