Healthcare

Retail

Access to food and drink within a hospital environment is vital. For patient, staff and visitors, alike a bite to eat can mean a welcome moment of respite, or a chance to pause and recharge the batteries.

Respite and rejuvenation

We put your patients, staff and visitors at the heart of our retail offering, knowing each will have differing needs and requirements that must be accommodated.

 

Particularly hospital staff; research has shown that a high-quality offering enhances team satisfaction and boosts engagement, in-turn improving care outcomes.

We provide a wide variety of retail formats for you to choose from including:

  • Restaurants
  • Coffee shops
  • Convenience stores and vending
  • Franchised high street brands; Co-Op, Costa and Subway.
  • “Click & collect” technology

We bring choice

Specifically designed to meet the needs of people within the healthcare setting, our convenience retail and vending formats provide an array of products to suit everyone and everything. Whether that’s a ‘feed me now’ situation with healthy sandwiches and snacks, a ‘grab and go’ for busy staff or keeping outpatients and visitors recharged, to 24/7 accessibility across even the most complex of hospital estates.

 

Our current franchise brands Subway and Costa are two of the world’s favourites. These popular partnerships mean you can give people the best of the high-street, without leaving the hospital.

 

We offer two restaurants to suit the needs of our hospitals. Kitchen Works provides our every day great value environment to enjoy a wide range of hot and cold meals, including healthier options. Modern Recipe is our premium offer, designed for environments where there is an opportunity to provide an extended range of freshly cooked meals and concepts.

 

By harnessing new technology, we have developed bespoke smartphone applications that enable pre-payment, click and collect and loyalty programmes for our retail offers alongside smartphone pre-order apps from our franchise partners at Subway and Costa.

 

As part of our retail responsibility, we ensure all services are fully compliant with CQUIN regulations, furthermore, putting people at the heart of what we do means providing healthier choices is paramount. Our dietitians review every retail format to guarantee a selection of nutritional, well-balanced products and menu options.
