Childminders- Environmental Health Department?

(6 Posts)

Hi everyone,
Just looking for some advice on this. I have my Ofsted pre-registration inspection on Monday to become a childminder. I was looking at a PACEY example policy on health and safety earlier, where I came across this:
'I have registered with my local environmental health department, and ensure correct storage, hygiene of food preparation areas and preparation of food.'
I'm just wondering if this is something I actually need to do? I have had a look online on my council's web page and can't seem to find anything saying that I need to do that.
Have any of you done this? If so, how do I do it?
Any help is much appreciated, thanks!

I think the action each local authority takes is different too. I had a visit from environmental health and a full food safety inspection. I have regular updates with them.
