The catering team at Blackpool Victoria Hospital have been awarded a Five Star hygeine rating once again following a visit from Public Health Officers.
The Trust has achieved a five star rating for each consecutive year since the system was launched in 2010.
The visit is an in-depth lengthy audit carried out by two authorised officers from the local council to check the Trust is complying with food law/legislation.
Checks are carried out in specific areas such as:
• The fabric of the building
• Policies and procedures
• Food safety management systems in place
• Staff training and awareness
Lorna Miller, Catering Manager at Blackpool Victoria Hospital said: “This can only be achieved by the team working towards a common goal. I am proud to manage a group of hardworking, committed staff.”
