High Peak patients being treated at Stockport’s Stepping Hill Hospital will be able to take advantage of improved food thanks to a new state-of-the-art kitchen.

The £3.3 million investment will help catering staff cook and deliver almost 3,000 meals a day to patients and staff. As well as providing more space for the 60-plus catering staff, the new building has more natural light and better air control and also includes new equipment for a quicker and better quality service.

The hospital’s Director of Estates and Facilities, Paul Holt, said: “Serving healthy, nutritional and tasty food is a vital part of the care Stepping Hill Hospital provides, and the new kitchen will be a great help in carrying out that service.”
