The one-hour webinar featured an interview with Phil Shelley, who led the team that conducted the review. The former Hospital Caterers Association chair was also joined by the current chair Craig Smith and Paul Freeston, chief executive of Apetito ltd.

The Hospital Food Review, published on October 26th, proposed eight recommendations to help improve the quality of meals served to patients, staff and visitors by NHS Trusts across 1,200 hospitals nationwide.
The eight proposals included improving food and drink standards, with a particular focus on food safety, also kitchen upgrades, digital meal ordering systems, the professionalisation of the catering service, cutting food waste and the appointment of a monitoring group to ensure compliance.
