Food at Queen’s Hospital in Romford has been rated as ‘excellent’ by assessors.

The Patient Environment Action Team scores for trusts across the country were published last week – with Barking, Havering and Redbridge University Hospitals NHS Trust (BHRUT) being praised in all areas.

The report looks at key areas including cleanliness, infection control and the patient environment, such as bathrooms, lighting, floors and patient areas.

While the food was judged as ‘excellent’, all other areas were marked as being ‘good’.

The food section looks at menu, choice, quality, quantity, temperature, presentation, beverages, service and support.

The new Lavender Garden at Queen’s Hospital, Rom Valley Way, came in for particular praise.

Director of Nursing, Deborah Wheeler, said: “I am delighted that these scores reflect the hard work put in by our staff. It is so important that patients are cared for in the best possible environment, with clean and up-to-date facilities, with dignity and with any support they may need.”
