Kent and Medway NHS and Social Care Partnership Trust has appointed ISS Healthcare to provide retail and patient catering. This is the Trust's first commercial partnership

Teresa Barker, Deputy Director of Nursing & Practice, KMPT said: “KMPT set out to appoint a catering service partner that listened clearly to our requirements, quickly understood the importance we place on providing our patients, staff, carers and visitors with good quality food options and present this in a way that offers flexibility in menus, sustainability, and efficiency.”

Kent and Medway NHS and Social Care Partnership Trust (KMPT) is one of the largest mental health trusts in England and provides mental health, learning disability, substance misuse and forensic services across the area of Kent and Medway to a population of 1.7 million people.

The new service will cover locations in Canterbury, Dartford, Maidstone, Margate and Sittingbourne.

The tender process was run by the London Procurement Partnership, with the contract commencing in September for an initial five-year period.
