Nourishing Bonds: Sophie's Legacy and NHS Partnership Ensures Parents Can Eat Alongside Children

In May 2023, as part of Sophie's Legacy's ongoing commitment to ensuring the well-being of parents during hospital stays with their children, Charlotte met with Mr. Robert Strachan, the Head of Catering for North Hampshire Hospitals.

During this session, Charlotte was able to talk about, not only her own personal experience but also those of other families. And guess what? Mr Strachan listened! Following the meeting significant changes were made at hospitals in Basingstoke and Winchester, both in terms of the quality of the menus, and to allow parents to order three meals a day, alongside their child. Charlotte said, 'Rob and his team have overhauled the menus. They have put so much time and effort into this and it will have a big impact for patients and families in hospital.'

This is a huge step forward and the feedback from the families has been very positive.
