The arrival of a new steam vending machine at The Hub means that Gateshead Health colleagues can now access hot food on-site at the QE Hospital 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

The arrival of the steam vendor comes following investigation into finding a solution that can provide healthy meals which are of a high quality at any given time, and meals come highly recommended from taste testers.

A solution to provide 24/7 catering was sought following feedback from colleagues, and particularly those who work night shifts and weekends. A variety of dishes are available and the health and wellbeing team would like to thank our catering team and QE Facilities for their work in helping get the steam vendor in operation.
