Medirest support services /

Patient wellbeing is at the heart of everything we do

Medirest support services create positive environments to aid recovery and support the wellbeing of all who pass through our hospital doors. This is achieved through the provision of nutritious, appetising tasty meal choices to patients, fuelling workforces so they remain healthy and productive, supporting security services to maintain safe environments as well as helping clinicians to work efficiently through well managed logistical services.

Mealtimes are a welcome distraction for a patient during a hospital stay providing familiarity and comforting favourite dishes like you would receive at home. More importantly mealtimes provide essential nutrition that can contribute to quicker recover rates and shorter bed stays.

With a low capital outlay the Steamplicity Patient Dining system gives hospitals the flexibility to provide hot, freshly cooked meals to patients and requires minimal space to deliver a mealtime service at ward level and reduces wastage of meals.  

Steamplicity is a micro steaming system that allows raw ingredients in meals to be freshly cooked in less than 5 minutes and immediately served to patients – at any hour of the day or night. The Steamplicity Patient Dining menu includes over 25 hot meal options including smaller portions, finger foods and blue dining plates to help people living with dementia or difficulties using cutlery.

Compass NHS Cleaning Services


With the focus on minimising hospital-acquired infections, people always look at how clean a healthcare facility is. A clean, well-maintained healthcare facility is necessary to provide the required background to good standards of hygiene and infection control. This also inspires confidence in the facility’s commitment to providing a safe, high standard of care to patients, staff and the public.

Compass NHS healthcare cleaning services provide a feeling of safety and are scientifically measured, audited and delivered with the correct responsiveness a hospital requires.
