Monthly Training for Bristol City Care Homes

Textured modifed diet training

Care homes across Bristol were given the opportunity to attend Textured Modified Diet training arranged and paid for by Medicines Management Team – NHS Bristol Clinical Commissioning Group.

Staff were invited to attend a day session ran by Gary Brailsford from Dining with Dignity and Sharon Sexton a Specialist Dietitian. The morning theory session covered nutrition, fortification and presentation of meals.

A practical session followed in the afternoon. Working in pairs staff cut and blended food as per National Descriptors and presented the meals showing techniques they had learnt.

Gary commented: “The finished meals looked amazing – I’m thrilled to be helping these staff make a difference”.

The training is ongoing in 2017.
