Wilson Vale wins two-year healthcare contract

Boutique staff caterer Wilson Vale has won a two-year contract with employee-owned social enterprise Circle.

The deal, worth £300,000 in annual turnover, sees Wilson Vale provide catering services at Circle's Nottingham NHS Treatment, the largest day surgery hospital in Europe.

The independent operator will provide services to 500 on-site staff as well as public catering for day patients and visitors. Chef Paul Gilbert, previously at the international law firm, Wragge & Co, has been appointed to deliver a menu with an emphasis on healthy food using seasonal ingredients.

Wilson Vale co-founder and managing director, Andrew Wilson (pictured), said: "We gained the contract after a long and challenging tender process which involved several site visits to some of our existing catering operations so that our prospective client could experience our food and service levels first-hand.

"This is a very welcome and exciting addition to our existing B&I and education portfolio."

Circle was founded with the aim of redefining the patient experience by introducing hospitality into healthcare and creating a healing environment in all of their facilities.
