I have had quite a few surgical procedures carried out over the past two years and have to say that to my mind the food is absolutely disgusting. I have spent almost six months in hospital over the past few years and I have had to rely on family members bringing food in at visiting times.
For example on one occasion I was admitted to the Western Infirmary with an abscess in my abdomen which burst resulting in septicaemia. I was offered a curry pie for dinner as apparently there was nothing else available at the time. After all of the money our government has been spending advertising healthy eating and healthy lifetstyle, not once in my experience have I been offered a piece of fresh fruit or a yoghurt or anything which has the remote touch of colour in it. Something needs to be done about this urgently.
