FOI 4048 Catering

From the NHS list of hospitals I gathered that you have about 527 beds at the Royal Surrey County Hospital, is that still correct? Yes 

From that same list I have seen that your meals are provided by a contracted caterer in a ‘cook serve’ style, please correct me if I’m wrong here? No

Now my follow-up questions from this are:

1. Whether your site offers bulk or plated service? Bulked 

2. Do you use plastic or china cutlery and plates? China  

3. When it comes to your purchasing process in the catering sector, do you have a centralized system with a purchasing department or are the individual people allowed to make their orders themselves (up to a certain limit)? Combination of both

  • Centralized system
  • Decentralized system 

4. Where do you get the information about the products you need from?

  • Manufacturer
  • Dealer
  • Purchasing department
  • Internet
  • Price list
  • Others:  Combination of the above 

5. Are those who you get your information from the ones you also buy from or do you use a different authority for that?

  • Manufacturer
  • Dealer
  • Purchasing department
  • Internet
  • Price list
  • Others:  Combination of the above 

6. From whom do you buy your products in the end?  Combination of both

  • Manufacturer
  • Dealer 

7. Last but not least would it be possible to get the contact details of your catering manager (as in first and surname, phone number and email address)? Royal Surrey County Hospital NHS Foundation Trust does not disclose the direct contact details of its staff. This is so ensure that at the time of publishing of this information, it is not out of date.
