Case Study: Newcastle upon Tyne Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust

Case Study: Newcastle upon Tyne Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust


 

Freeman Hospital is part of Newcastle upon Tyne Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust and employs over 14,000 staff across two large sites and in the Newcastle community. It’s a traditional cooking hospital which has the Food4Life Silver Award and last year served 778,927 patient meals. The kitchen also supports a very busy staff and visitor restaurant. As they purchase British products throughout the year they’ve decided to support Love British Food as follows:

  • Working very closely with all suppliers throughout the year making sure they use as much British produce as they can
  • Running menus for both patient and staff only using British products
  • Looking towards changing their functions menus to incorporate only British products
  • Specifically behind British Food Fortnight they ran a daily ‘Chef Specials’ menu all using locally sourced British meat and seasonal British vegetables. Classics such as Chicken & Mushroom Pie, Beef Lasagne and British roast meats on a Sunday all featured on the menu
