Speaking about the stall, Dr Kirsty Edmondson Jones, director of estates and facilities, said: “This is a fantastic development, and I can’t wait for our colleagues, visitors and patients to see it in action.
“We are always looking for new opportunities to improve the services we offer to both our workforce and visitors, and we are pleased to be working with the team at Fresh ‘n’ Local to bring a pop-up grocery to DBTH.
"We have some more ideas and developments cooking away in the background, so watch this space.”
The Fresh ‘n’ Local stall will be available under a gazebo on all sites at the designated places.
