"Problems at Manchester Royal Cardiac Unit"

I spent ten days at Manchester Royal Cardiac Unit having a cardiac bypass and didn't eat for most of the time I was in there because the food, (provided by Sodexo), was so bad. It was unhealthy, lacking in nutrition and being vegetarian, the vegetarian options were very limited. They were all full of cheese. I don't think the other patients ate it either, and one said they could get a better, more nutritious meal at McDonalds.
You can't fault the staff, they're very dedicated, but they are very understaffed.
Once, when I was the only person who was mobile on the ward, another patient had a fall, onto her face. I shouted for help and the staff came. While they were helping her, I heard one of the staff say "does nothing f***ing work in here". I know that not all the equipment does work, so, on top of being understaffed, the staff are stressed out because of the problems with equipment.
