About: Hull Royal Infirmary

I was in HRI over the weekend my treatment was great and so were the staff. My only compliant is they don't cater for Coeliac's and lactose free. In AAU, I had no breakfast,!! only childs size tuna salad for dinner, when it came to my tea there was Nothing,!!!! I asked if they had a Jacket spud the answer was no. I had to get my wife to bring a sandwich in for me, and milk for my drinks.
