The food you create - all made from fresh ingredients and prepared on site - will be every bit as fresh, eye-opening and impressive as meals served by the best hotels and restaurants.
But while the buzz of the kitchen might be familiar, the difference here is that the work you do will be a vital part of the total care package we offer, helping as many patients as possible to return to full health quicker. Whether it's high quality nutrition to help them recover, comfort food for when they're feeling vulnerable, or something that looks and tastes amazing to take their minds off their worries - you'll have a huge impact on patient care.
