The Environment and Us

In keeping with our tradition and ethos we have a particular interest in caring for our world and a special concern for the environment in which we all live and work.  In addition to using resources carefully and thoughtfully, we aim to conserve our natural resources. 

Your Meals

Nutritious. Tasty.  Appetising.  All important aspects of your meals that contribute to your physical health and wellbeing, especially after having surgery.  We are enthusiastic about quality free range and fresh local ingredients, including those from our own kitchen garden, in our dishes.  Here at Mercy the menu is planned and managed by our onsite Dietitian.  If you have food preferences, intolerances or allergies please let us know and we will adapt your menu to incorporate such requirements.

Natural Resources

We focus our attention on preserving our natural resources wherever possible.  This includes using re-usable products as these are preferred to disposable items.  When disposable items are used, attention is paid to their level of biodegradability or the ability to recycle in a green manner.

Monitoring of Natural Resources such as energy and water are being constantly undertaken and improvements are being made continuously.

 Waste Disposal

 This is an important aspect of our care for the environment and when ever possible recyclables are used.  Hazardous waste is given careful attention and thoughtful consideration is given to the disposal of all other waste.  If chemicals are a requirement the least toxic option is often taken.
