Vending Industry helps NHS England achieve 1 million reduction in Sugary Drinks!

NHS England Hospital Trusts are to receive a cash boost after slashing the amount of sugary drinks they sell. Sales of sugar drinks accounted for 15.6% of drinks sold in hospital shops and vending equipment in July 2017, this was reduced to 8.7% in March 2018 in 9 out of 10 Trusts after NHS England boss Simon Stevens ordered hospital chiefs to “get their house in order”. The reduction in Sugary Drinks sold is equivalent to 1.1 million cans of Coke, 10 million teaspoons of sugar or 160 million Calories.
Options Management Ltd has been helping our customers in the NHS meet these targets by offering low sugar and sugar free drinks compliant with NHS England CQUIN national goals for improving patient care.
