Mr Hughes added: 'Our plan at the hospital is to raise the quality of the food, make people's time here as enjoyable as possible, promote local suppliers and provide some really great meals at what I think is the most important restaurant in the county.

'The food served at the hospital is vital to aid recovery, it sustains and enthuses the workforce and puts people in a positive frame of mind. Good food can brighten up a very difficult day. We can also promote the benefits of local, seasonal, sustainable food from our own county on this very special occasion.

'Good food is as essential as the treatment and care that patients receive while they're at hospital and we have fantastic local ingredients on our doorstep so it makes sense to celebrate them and to celebrate all that is great about our county, in particular the wonderful staff who work at the hospital and do the county proud every single day.'
