Food Safety & Hygiene Level 2 In Healthcare

All UK food handlers are required to take food safety training in order to ensure that the food they prepare and serve is safe to eat. Employers in healthcare settings are legally obliged to provide food safety training for employees and volunteers who handle food. so that they can carry out their roles safely and effectively.

Why is food safety important in healthcare?

The food prepared in healthcare settings may be served to vulnerable people. Young people, the elderly and people recovering from illness may be particularly susceptible to food poisoning, which can lead to further conditions such as dehydration and gastroenteritis.

Hospital food safety can be complex because the food is often provided by contractors, who deliver cook-chill or cook-freeze food to be reheated on site. And the food is often served by ward staff such as health care assistants or nursing staff, whose other tasks include personal care and cleaning. This can increase the risk of cross-contamination and other food safety hazards occuring.

Because of this, it is vital to ensure that all necessary precautions are taken when storing, handling, preparing and serving food to patients in healthcare settings.
