Cashstrapped healing center declares arrangements to acquaint a different Halal kitchen with cook for Islamic patients and staff Daily Mail
“A cash-strapped hospital is pla
ing to introduce a separate Halal kitchen to cater for Islamic patients and staff.
Bosses at Sandwell and West Birmingham NHS Trust proposed the move after coming under fire for not ensuring Halal meals were up to standard in one of their hospitals.
Chief executive Toby Lewis said a ‘lot of work’ had been done at Sandwell Hospital with local suppliers to improve meals.
But in a further step hospital chiefs are proposing to establish a new kitchen specifically to prepare Halal meals.
Former patients have said the move, which comes less than a year after 450 jobs were axed, is a ‘waste of funds’.

The trust said the cost of implementing a separate kitchen has not been worked out yet as plans are in the early stages.
