Kitchen and catering staff at Samuel Johnson Hospital in Lichfield are celebrating after being awarded five stars for hygiene and cleanliness standards.

Lichfield District Council Environmental Health inspectors visited the kitchens at the hospital as part of the Ratemyplace scheme.

The system is based on a star rating, which is calculated by taking into account how hygienic the premises are, whether they operate recognised food hygiene practices and how much confidence the inspector has in the management to keep their premises up to standard.

Stars awarded are from zero for very poor or non-compliant, to five stars for achieving full compliance and high standards.

Jackie Holt, South Staffordshire PCT Estates and Facilities Manager, said:

“This award is recognised as representing the highest standards achievable within catering facilities across all of Staffordshire. I am thrilled that both of our community hospitals achieved the highest rating and thanks must go to the catering staff in Lichfield for maintaining the premises in such a high state of cleanliness and organisation.”

Kitchen staff at Samuel Johnson Hospital were praised for their standards of cleanliness, organisation and management and the high standard of compliance with food hygiene and cleaning. Excellent food safety procedures were also acknowledge at Sir Robert Peel.
