Five stars for hospital food

Highgate Hospital, has been awarded a five-star rating, the top rating, by Haringey Council in the London-wide “Scores on the Door” initiative. 

The scheme, supported by the Food Standards Agency, rates hygiene and food preparation standards in food businesses within London boroughs, taking into account:

  • Hygiene and safety
  • Premises structure, and
  • Confidence in management to handle food safely.

It also enables members of the public to easily check on the latest environmental health inspection results for any food business such as restaurants, hotels, hospitals and supermarkets.

The hospital’s excellent five star rating means that patients can be confident that not only will they receive outstanding clinical care, but the hospital also practices very high standards of food safety management and the kitchens are fully compliant with food safety legislation.
