The leading provider of catering and soft services to the NHS and wider UK healthcare market has secured the two year contract extension, following a successful three year partnership with the hospital. The contract covers domestic services, patient dining, portering, a Deli Marché retail café, security, car park management and linen maintenance – carried out by over 60 Medirest colleagues.  

Medirest’s patient dining offer for the hospital is Steamplicity; an innovative system which provides patients with a choice of 28 main meals, enabling them to look at the menu and choose a different dish each day during their stay. The meals are steam-cooked and cooked from fresh in just a few minutes.

Steve Cenci, Medirest MD commented: “We’re proud to announce our continued partnership with University Hospitals Bristol NHS Foundation Trust. Our team has worked hard to deliver consistently high standards and our successful retention of this contract is testament to this. We look forward to continuing to work with the Trust, building on the partnership we have developed with their team and the great service we are delivering.”

The hospital’s 2014 Patient-Led Assessments of the Care Environment saw scores of 98.54% for cleaning and 100% for ward food. The Trust consists of a group of hospitals in the heart of Bristol, with over 8,000 staff who offer over 100 different clinical services across nine sites.
