ISS Wins Catering Contract With Kent and Medway NHS Trust

ISS Wins Catering Contract With Kent and Medway NHS Trust
29 January 2024
 

A five-year contract to provide catering services for Kent and Medway NHS and Social Care Partnership Trust has been won by ISS.

50 new food host jobs will be created at the trust, to serve food and help patients place orders and plan meals on wards in Margate, Canterbury, Maidstone and Dartford. Two restaurants at St Martin’s Hospital, Canterbury, and Littlebrook Hospital in Dartford will also be refurbished to create a new eating space for patients, staff and visitors.

The contract begins on 8 February 2024.

Sheila Stenson, Chief Executive of Kent and Medway NHS and Social Care Partnership Trust, said: “I am really pleased we will be able to offer a much-improved service that will provide tastier food, more quickly, free up our staff’s time to focus on clinical care and offer our patients greater control over their meals.”

Donna Brown, Managing Director for Healthcare at ISS, added: “KMPT is one of many NHS Trusts we are proud to work with, and share the fundamental belief that, when you’re in hospital, food is medicine. 

“We recognise that in order to provide a high-quality service we need the right resources and staff in place to do this. Our food hosts will be that important link between us, the Trust and the patients being cared for every day, so we can hear first-hand about the things working well and where we can continuously improve.

“We are looking forward to working even more closely over the next five years with KMPT to make sure that we are responding to the needs of their patients, staff and visitors and provide them with an ever-improving catering service.”
