Blackpool Victoria Hospital kitchen's five star rating
Blackpool Victoria Hospital's kitchens have been given a five-star food hygiene rating '“ the best possible '“ for a seventh year in a row.
The award comes after an unannounced visit by Environmental Health inspectors from Blackpool Council, which also saw food preparation and cooking areas examined, alongside paperwork.
Kitchen manager Darren Cadwell said: “To have the first star rating again is absolutely fantastic, but for me anything less is not a second thought.
“As a hospital we have to have five stars and it really does make all the hard work that goes into making 3,000 meals a day worth it.”
Senior site services manager Yvonne Widdows added: “This award is a real achievement when you think about the amount of food we produce every day, but it’s important to us that we stay on top of requirements all the time.”
