Philip Shelley

Facilities Manager, Musgrove Park Hospital

Creating a balanced meal choice for the wide range of patients that we serve in a General Acute Hospital is an on-going challenge.

Since Musgrove Park Hospital moved to a catering option of cook freeze for our patients in 2004, we have continually added and adjusted our menu selections to ensure that we give our patients a variety of choice. Fresh soups, sandwiches and salads are vital parts of the menu that can make a real difference to each and every patient. Over the past few months, we have added new meal selections from The Healthy Food Company; the planning and procuring for the selection of these choices has deliberately been a careful arrangement. We have started the choices on the children’s menus which has been received very favourably and we plan to roll out choices to our care and elderly patients in the coming months.

“Ensuring that our Trust Board, Dietitians and Clinical Teams understand the importance of our supplier selection needs involvement. To help do this, Sarah and Kay liaised with us to provide a suitable launch with tasting and questions helping to push our standards to the highest level possible. Enthusiasm and a willingness to have a product that is nutritionally superior as well as being tasty and presentable is something that Sarah and Kay are working incredibly hard to achieve.

Musgrove Park Hospital is proud to be in partnership with such a company; proving that working together, with complete focus on the patient, will provide results that bring pride to the NHS.

Nursery Director

We have been trying to supply hot meals for years now, but either the price was too high, or the food was not good enough. The Healthy Food Company gets the balance completely right!

Mum and Nursery Client

The Healthy Food Company supplies the food at my children’s nursery. I had to contact them as my son doesn’t eat at all, tiny bites of toast or grapes but not really a meal, but in nursery he will eat chicken curry and fish pie for lunch and dinner. Kay has made sure that these meals are available for him every day, which she didn’t have to do, and has even supplied me food for at home. A very happy mummy here!
