BATEMAN Catering, Compass Group's healthcare division, is to open a Café Select next month in the shopping mall at the new entrance to St Thomas' Hospital in London.

The outlet, which is expected to serve 100,000 people in its first year, is the first of Compass's New Famous Foods to be introduced into an NHS hospital.

A McDonald's restaurant opened at nearby Guy's Hospital at the end of 1992.


SCOTLAND's tourism industry is backing the Welcome Host initiative, aimed at improving the way visitors are welcomed to the country.

The initiative, which puts staff through one-day training programmes in providing a service, was launched last week in 12 areas of Scotland.

The Wales Tourist Board was the first to introduce the scheme in the UK, and most regional tourist boards in England have adopted it.
