Healthcare facility staff serve up Christmas dinner to patients

December 7, 2017

As families across Norfolk, England, tuck into a Christmas dinner, the catering team at nearby James Paget University Hospital provides a traditional Christmas lunch with all the trimmings, according to an article on the Eastern Daily Press website.

They also make sure that a full menu is available to staff and visitors to the hospital at breakfast, lunch and dinner every day — including over the holidays.

In total, the team of eight chefs and 70 catering assistants prepare 2,000 meals per day. This includes over 400 meals — three times per day — for patients, prepared according to their dietary needs, which mean there are menus for those who are diabetic or need high protein, low potassium or nut-free food.

“Christmas day can be hard for patients who would rather be at home with their families than in hospital. But we hope that providing a traditional Christmas lunch with all the trimmings for patients and staff, including crackers, will help spread a little festive cheer,” said Nichola Hicks, who is responsible for the catering team as head of facilities management.
