This is a review of the catering service only. I found the food to be unacceptable and unhealthy and it must be especially detrimental for long term patients. If you are one of the first wards to be served you will get a meal that you choose from a short list. It will resemble a reheated school dinner, but be less healthy. Anyone wanting to get their '5-a-day' will have to provide their own, it is impossible to do so from the food choices offered. Luckily laxatives are given with every meal! If you are on one of the last wards to be served you will not get the meal of your choice, in fact you will be lucky to get any meals. Unless you consider (literally) a dollop of tuna mayonnaise on a plate (vegetables, potatoes, bread and fruit regularly run out) or a white bread sweetcorn sandwich sufficiently nutritious for your main meal, make sure you have visitors to bring in food. But be warned, the hospital shop has an unhealthy and uninspiring selection by the time visiting hours arrive. Perhaps a partnership with a supermarket should be considered, they seem better able to provide healthy food options all day at a reasonable cost!
