Ten regional winners were asked to produce a one off two-course meal suitable for NHS patients in the National Healthcare Hot Cookery Competition. The Salisbury pair earned the right to represent the South West, following success in last year's regional heats.
In addition, a team of eight from Salisbury District Hospital participated in this year's regional event in early February picking up a pair of golds, silvers, bronzes and merits across a range of categories.
Ian Robinson, Facilities General Manager at Salisbury District Hospital said: "Judging in this competition is of an exceptionally high standard, so to receive a bronze medal for the two course meal is a real accomplishment."
"This, along with our success in the regional competition, shows that the team here at Salisbury District Hospital can produce top quality food in a range of different situations."
Mr Robinson added: "It's important to see how we fare against other hospitals across the country and satisfying to know that that we are up there with the best. This is good for our patients and excellent news for our catering staff and I congratulate them on their achievements." Ends
