Today we are asking for your reaction to a report claiming the standard of food at Stoke Mandeville hospital is now 'excellent'.

The findings have been audited by an outside body, last year Stoke Mandeville was assessed as ‘good’.

£4 is spent on food per patient per day which is the national average.

The Patient Environment Action Team (PEAT) also rated the quality of food available at Amersham and Wycombe hospitals as ‘excellent’.

The report looks at a range of areas, including food, cleanliness, bathroom facilities and décor. In addition the survey - carried out by a team including Trust staff and a patient representative - also looked at privacy and dignity standards.

Ian Garlington, director of property services at the Trust, said the report paints a very encouraging picture “We are delighted with the improvements we have made this year especially with our food. We understand the importance of good nutrition to aid our patients’ recoveries and ensure we offer good, balanced meals,” he said.

“The assessment shows patients can be reassured that they will be treated in clean, safe hospitals where their privacy and dignity are paramount concerns. The overall the assessment underlines that we’re helping to make our patient promises, like safe care in clean hospitals, a reality.”

Buckinghamshire Hospitals NHS Trust was one of 324 to take part in the annual survey this year.
