Phill Shelley, chair of the Hospital Food Review
Phil Shelley, who chaired the Hospital Food Review, and the Hospital Caterers Association chair Brian Robb have encouraged individuals, teams and organisations to enter the Public Sector Catering Awards.

The Public Sector Catering Awards, which will take place on Thursday 4th April 2024 at the Hilton London Metropole, aim to celebrate the achievements of individuals and teams who operate within a public sector catering environment including contract caterers.

Shelley said: “There is no greater acknowledgement, than to be nominated by your peers for an industry award. Public Sector Catering has long been, and continues to be, at the core of positive decision making and campaigning across all of our businesses. 

“We are all working with colleagues that inspire and instigate constructive change within our catering teams – use this opportunity to nominate them, for an appropriate award. Take that step!”

The Hospital Catering Award will be presented to the individual, team or organisation who has best demonstrated an improvement in patient, staff and visitor meal provision or in one of these areas in particular. Innovation in managing waste, improving service levels and the patient/customer experience will all be regarded as significant factors for judging.

Robb added: “To all Public Sector Caterers in particular those associated with health, do you have a team that are delivering above and beyond? Are you in awe of a colleague excelling in their role? Then you need to consider nominating them in the Public Sector Catering Awards.

“These prestigious awards highlight the hard work and achievements of employees, teams and colleagues, can boost staff morale, improve motivation and even raise your business or organisations profile and perhaps help attract new talent to your business. It's a wonderful way to recognise your team.”
