Contributions to Nutrition and Hydration Week praised

Chief executive Debbie Fleming presented an award and certificate last week to Lara Walker, sister of Lychett ward for arranging the best nutrition themed display during Nutrition and Hydration Week.

The display raised awareness of the importance of hydration and nutrition as a vital part of a patient’s overall treatment, and featured photos of the vintage tea party that took place during the week and photos of food service on the ward in the 60/70’s.

The award also recognised the rest of Lychett ward team who brought in additional home baked goods and wheeled bed bound patients into the day room so that they too could participate and enjoy the activities.

The team will spend the £30 voucher prize on something which will improve nutrition on the ward and at the moment plan to buy a new toaster.

Organisers would like to thank all other wards who put up nutrition themed displays, took part in Nutrition & Hydration week and who continue to be committed to improving the nutritional care of patients.
