Refuel NHS staff with food and retail

We provide NHS staff with easy access to nutritious and rejuvenating food and drinks, helping your teams refuel so they can deliver excellent care to patients. With rest, rehydration and refuelling being essential to NHS staff wellbeing, we provide quality food and retail services that positively impact on patient experience. 

We focus on the wellbeing of your workforce and visitors through varied and nourishing refuelling options – whether that’s a hearty hot meal or an on-the-go snack.

Nourishment and time out

We provide hospital catering services and retail outlets for staff to rest and refuel. With NHS staff wellbeing in mind, we make sure there are nourishing, balanced and healthy eating options.

Quality coffee shops

Convenience and vending

When it’s not possible to take a break and eat a nourishing meal, our convenient retail and vending options offer ‘grab and go’. Our 24/7 Deli is a ground-breaking automated retail solution that provides nutritious hot and cold food day and night.

Click and collect options

Using bespoke smartphone apps, NHS staff can preorder and prepay for their food within our retail outlets, plus retail loyalty programmes with our franchise partners. Ordering exactly what they want, when they want is key to foster a strong staff wellbeing culture.

Healthy food for NHS staff

It’s as important for NHS staff to have good nourishment as it is for patients. Research shows that high-quality nutrition improves staff wellbeing and engagement, which in turn improves care outcomes. 

Our restaurant and retail food options are designed and reviewed by our healthcare dieticians to provide evidence-based nutrition. We ensure that all services are fully compliant with CQUIN regulations and provide supporting nutrition analysis and allergen data.

Improving staff wellbeing with insights and data

NHS staff wellbeing is a key area for improvement in hospitals. Our Experiencia service enables you to measure patient experience in the moment and improve your services.  

This supports staff wellbeing by helping you to identify and resolve issues quickly, as well as helping you understand where to focus continued improvement in non-clinical services.

Saying no to plastic

We’re phasing out single-use plastic across our healthcare sites. We’ve already stopped using many items, such as plastic straws and stirrers, and have switched to innovative, sustainable solutions, such as re-useables, bioplastics, organic material and other environmentally friendly initiatives.
