IT’S fair to say hospital food has a less-than-glowing reputation, up their with airplane grub.

But that is all about to change at Gibraltar’s St Bernard Hospital, where a new catering facility has just been launched.

The facility replaces the old kitchen at the North Mole, meaning food reaches the diner quicker and fresher.

It will no longer be presented to patients on plates with unappetizing plastic lids, but rather served up on the wards from bulk containers.

The purpose-built facility ensures food waste is reduced, and that the highest standards of hygiene and efficiency are maintained.

More than 2,000 fresh meals can now be served up each day.

Health Minister Dr John Cortes said: “This new facility will ensure much better quality food, better prepared and served to the benefit of all patients and the other users of this service.

“It has boosted the morale of staff who were working in sub-standard premises with old, inefficient equipment, as it has greatly improved working conditions and has allowed for training of the personnel.”
