"Good food would have helped me"

About: Grantham & District Hospital

(as the patient),

I was not in the mood to eat in the first three days or so but when I tried something I was appalled about the way it had been cooked and the final taste.

I have spent three similar spells in Grantham over recent years and the quality of the food has not changed. Some serous effort needs to be put into making tasty nutritious food and thus seriously minimising waste. Just consider also the therapeutic value of good food. I'm sure it would have really helped me.
