Patients, visitors and staff can be assured of Trust meat products

Roger Thomas, Interim Director of Estates and Facilities Management at Great Western Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust said: "Our main food supplier has confirmed that they have not supplied products or ingredients sourced from any of the meat suppliers cited by the Food Standards Agency and that meat products do not contain DNA of any species other than that declared on the label.

"We are asking all our suppliers to certify in writing that they have sufficiently robust procedures in place for monitoring the source of meat and meat products. We are also seeking suitable assurances on the sampling and checking regimes of suppliers with regards to authenticity."
