Cwm Taf University Health Board – Hospital Catering and Patient Nutrition Follow-Up Review
Between March and June 2015, we undertook follow-up work at the Health Board to assess the extent to which it had implemented the Auditor General’s national recommendations. We also assessed the extent to which the Health Board had addressed the recommendations made as part of the local audit work in 2010 and again in 2013.
The Health Board has made good progress in addressing recommendations to improve catering and nutrition services and has significantly reduced the subsidy for non-patient catering. There is further scope to strengthen some aspects of nutritional screening, ensure timely nursing support at mealtimes and reduce the costs of patient catering.
