Hospital criticised over food hygiene

Posted in: Food Poisoning Medical Negligence 

A community hospital in Denbighshire has been criticised for its one out of five star food hygiene rating. A recent inspection of Denbigh Infirmary, run by the Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board, described the food hygiene measures as “abysmal”, and stated that “major improvement” was necessary. A spokesperson from the health board said that they were “very disappointed” with the rating and agreed that changes had to be made.

The Welsh Conservative Shadow Minister for Health, Darren Millar AM, said that these findings were truly appalling and said that no hospital should be “scoring this poorly”. A statement made by the university health board said that rapid action had already been taken to address the concerns raised by the report.

Awaiting re-inspection

The statement continued that on the 29 April, an environmental health officer inspected the hospital kitchen and found that all required actions were being complied with within the notice period. The report stated that the hospital is soon to have another full inspection of its catering facility.

This week saw Glan Clwyd Hospital in Denbighshire receive a two out of five star food hygiene rating, which furthers the point that “improvement is necessary” in Denbighshire hospitals.

Health officials stated that issues flagged up at the Bodelwyddan general hospital have since been rectified.
