Oxford Branch News

From Anita Carthew

The Oxford Branch met on 22 June at the Cynthia Spencer Hospice in Northampton and our thanks go to Kevin Westrip, General Manager Support Services, for hosting the meeting and providing refreshments. As always, we enjoyed a lively discussion on the challenges faced by our industry.

Mabel Blades had prepared a presentation to discuss the requirements around gluten free diets and how best to present the options to patients. However, this has been deferred to our next meeting because several Members were unable to attend because they were off on their jolly holidays.

We also enjoyed a presentation by James Varghese of apetito about the company’s new Multi-Plus range, and he kindly prepared a tasting session.

Our next meeting will be held on Thursday 12 October – the venue and agenda will be sent out shortly. The AGM will be held at Northampton General Hospital on Thursday 23 November, and we’re also planning to include a bit of a Christmas Do, so we hope to see everyone there.
