Following on from staff feedback around facilities, we are pleased to confirm that a new water fountain has now been installed within The Hub providing colleagues with access to free water in the QE Hospital’s main on-site catering area.

Complementing the new addition, stocks of refillable and eco-friendly water bottles are now also available from The Hub and are priced at just £2.75 per bottle.

The Occupational Health and Wellbeing Team would like to place on record its thanks to both QE Facilities and the Catering Team for their help in installing the fountain.

Further work is expected to be carried out by the end of next work, which will see the final installation of new vending machines in both Theatres and at Bensham Cafe following a technical hitch during an attempted installation two weeks ago. We apologise to staff for any inconvenience delays have caused.
