Food reports for hospitals


I would like copies of food standard and hygiene reports carried out for all the hospitals within your area since January 1, 2011. If hospitals have faced re-inspections, then for some this will be more than one.

My question relates to NHS hospitals and private hospitals. It does not include care homes, hospices or other small premises. I am after the main inpatient hospitals in the area. As a rule of thumb, they should be producing more than 30 meals in a mealtime.

I would like you to provide me with the reports under the Environmental Information Regulations 2004. Should you have
difficulties releasing the data under the EU rules, then please consider the Freedom of Information Act 2000.

For clarification, where there are several venues on the same site (eg Marks & Spencers within the hospital, staff cafeteria, public cafeteria and patient kitchens) it is the patient facilities I am interested in. I am not concerned with the food normally consumed by staff or the public. If it is hard to distinguish between the different facilities without carrying out a detailed manual trawl of the data, then send them all. Extra data above and beyond what I am after is better than not enough.

I am not after ‘scores on the doors’ – this does not give sufficient information and is already in the public domain. I am after full copies of the reports.
