"Review of restaurant re sugary foods"

About: Northwick Park Hospital

I'm a visitor to the hospital, writing this in the Quattro Park restaurant while finishing a very healthy delicious and moderately priced hot meal.

My concern is simply this: in order to pay for the meal I had to perch my tray on a large ice team vending refrigerator, which was positioned so that space for only 2 trays remained at the till. Directly in front was a stand selling mars bars and other sweets. Where I now sit with my meal I'm facing a large Pepsi machine, and have just watched an obese man sit drinking his large Pepsi then leave.

There have been moves to remove sweets from tills in supermarkets, yet here they block passage to the till in a hospital. Since I have weak joints, it was difficult even holding the tray with no place to set it down. But this is a minor grievance compared with this bizarre sales practice of pushing sugary food and drink sales in a hospital canteen.

Please can you remedy this?

Best wishes
