We celebrated Nutrition and Hydration Week at The Horder Centre by delivering freshly made cream teas to all of our patients.
Simon McCarthy, Corporate Catering Manager and his team hand delivered the freshly baked scones which had been made in the hospital kitchen, to patients recovering from orthopaedic surgery.
The national awareness event which is celebrated around the country every year between 11-17 March, aims to help people understand the importance of nutrition and hydration in health and social care. It promotes a number of measures to enhance patient wellbeing including protected meal times to allow patients to eat meals undisturbed. In addition, it promotes the minimum standards for good nutrition in all settings and advises 10 key characteristics for good nutritional care.
