M&S is expanding its range within hospital stores in Swansea and throughout the UK to ensure key workers in our NHS have access to fresh food and essentials. M&S has 46 hospital stores, including Morriston Hospital and the products available are evolving to suit the needs of NHS workers on the frontline.
M&S has increased the size of daily deliveries to ensure core basics, including milk, bread and eggs, are available, and stock is replenished throughout the day. Following feedback from NHS workers, M&S has also increased the range within hospital stores so that workers in Swansea can pick up their favourite M&S food to eat during their shift and to take home.
Changes within M&S hospital stores in Swansea include all stores receiving more personal care items such as toothpaste, toilet roll and sanitary items. The food range has also been substantially expanded to include meat and fish, with staples like salmon, chicken and mince introduced, along with fresh produce. A wider range of prepared meals are also available, the majority of which can be frozen, so NHS workers can now stock-up on M&S favourites like Chicken Tikka Masala, Macaroni Cheese and Beef Lasagne. M&S will also continue to provide quick and delicious breakfast and lunchtime options, along with hot drinks, including coffee machines throughout the hospital in Swansea.
