Hospital eatery cuts its hours

Have your say

ROTHERHAM Hospital’s Rooftop restaurant will close during the evenings and weekends because of a decline in demand.

The diner, run by caterers ISS for the Rotherham NHS Foundation Trust, will have its hours cut from September 1.

Following discussions with staff, it has been decided to close the cafe at weekends and from 2pm Monday to Friday.

A trust spokeswoman said: “Analysis has shown very limited use of the restaurant at certain times.

“In these challenging economic times, neither the trust nor ISS can sustain a service that is under-utilised.”
