Catering Mark awarded to Scottish hospital for the first time

Hairmyres Hospital in Lanarkshire has become the first hospital in Scotland to achieve the Soil Association's Bronze Food for Life Catering Mark award.

The award recognises caterer ISS Healthcare for its work and commitment to improve meals at the hospital's Courtyard restaurant.

The on-site team, led by head chef Robert Murray, prepare and serve more than 200 meals to staff, visitors and out patients every day.

ISS Healthcare uses fresh ingredients which are free from additives and trans fats.

Murray said: "I'm so proud of all our team. Of course it is fantastic to be the first hospital in Scotland to be awarded the Catering Mark Bronze award, but more than that I am proud that my team serve the best quality meals we can to our customers."

The initiative involves changing menus, working with suppliers, sourcing fresh produce and preparing meals freshly on site.
