My son in law is in the ward being treated for Acute Myloid Luekemia, he has nothing but praise for the hard working,dedicated staff who are rushed off their feet. I was visiting one evening last week when the dinner cane in. I could not believe my eyes when I saw it, it was completely unidentifiable, I asked him, it was cottage pie, it looked like...and I am sorry to say...a plate of slop, as if someone had thrown a large spoonful of sloppy pie from a distance away, it was splattered onto the plate, accompanied by a minute amount of diced dried up carrots. I would not have given it to a dog, he ate it because he was hungry, at that time he still had an appetite. Pudding/sweet was a small pot of the sloppiest chocolate mousse I think I have even seen. Followed by a drop of orange juice in a plastic pot. He has not complained....but I am, it is outrageous to serve up food like this to such very sick people, well any patients for that matter. Whoever produced thus food should be ashamed of themselves, cottage pie is not rocket science. I looked on the nhs food website and how it should be,... i doubt if the hospital manager or Jeremy Hunt himself would want to eat this slop.such a shame when others are trying so very hard.
