Providing food and nourishment is a service of the NHS & Healthcare industry that is often overlooked. Far from being an optional add-on, it can make a real difference to the welfare of patients, as well as for staff and visitors.
As you would expect, an NHS / Healthcare catering job is concerned with providing food for patients, staff and visitors within their healthcare facilities. While gourmet dishes are unlikely to be whipped up in the NHS kitchen, high standards are expected. It is important that each meal that leaves the kitchen fulfils a range of medical, cultural and nutritional requirements. There are typically a varaity of positions from catering managers, to chefs, cooks and kitchen assistants.
