Graham Knight, deputy catering manager at Scunthorpe hospital, said: “This is the sixth year in a row that we have received a five-star rating.

“The catering staff have done exceptionally well again and I want to thank them for their continuous hard work. As a team a five-star rating is what we should be working towards on a daily basis so I hope this recognition not only lets my staff know their efforts are noticed but helps to maintain the high standards within the kitchen.”

The environmental health officer assessed Scunthorpe’s main hospital kitchen and the kitchens on wards 24 and 25.
