Serving great choices for staff and visitors
It's not only essential that healthcare providers take care of their patients. It's vital that they provide staff and visitors with quality catering and retail choices. ISS has operated successful staff and visitor catering facilities for over thirty NHS Trusts across the UK.
The Innov8 healthcare programme
Created by our retail specialists, the 'Innov8' programme is our proven blueprint for delivering quality results. The programme embraces every aspect of catering and retail within healthcare environments, featuring concepts that we can combine to create a bespoke solution for you. Each concept complies with relevant standards and comes with support from our tailored training programmes. Our concepts include:
- A Taste of Health: conveying the freshness of our food. ISS was among the first organisations to volunteer to participate in the Food Standards Agency's initiative to display calorie information in public restaurants. We were also an early signatory to the Department of Health’s Responsibility Deal, with particular emphasis on Health at Work
- Fresh Ideas: a rotational menu cycle based on a selection of traditional, healthy and vegetarian dishes from around the world
- Fresh to Go: a quality 'grab and go' sandwich concept that reflects the best of 'high street' retailing.
Our other concepts include Substation, Perfectpies, Doodles, and Go Pizza. Each features quality products and mirrors consumer tastes.
Partnering with leading providers
We work with Costa Coffee to meet the demand for quality beverages within your retail outlets. If you require a complete solution featuring a range of pasties and bread offers, we can also work alongside Delice de France.
Focusing on corporate social responsibility
At ISS, we believe that environmental concerns, business ethics, corporate social responsibility and human rights are central to our solutions. That's why we focus on sourcing responsibly and using locally produced food through our 'Locally Sourced' product range. We have also established modern apprenticeships, which involve training local talent in food preparation and service. Our YOURSHOP brand also reinforces corporate responsibility in healthcare. This convenience merchandiser supplies local goods and services at restaurants in a number of UK hospitals.
