The Hospital Caterers Association (HCA) has announced the shortlist for its annual awards.

The awards recognise the commitment and contribution of the association’s members. This will form part of the HCA Leadership and Development Forum, taking place at the Celtic manor on 11 and 12 April.

It has also introduced two new awards: the Efficiency and Improvement Award and the Special Contribution Award.

Stewart McKenzie, chair of the HCA said: “The HCA’s annual awards gives us the opportunity to praise the hard work and commitment from our members. It also gives us a chance to show our appreciation for all members of the association.

“We are excited for our two new award categories. It is always difficult to choose from many great nominated candidates. Congratulations to all finalists."
