"Inadequate meals for someone with Coeliac Disease"

About: Northern General Hospital / Cardiology

(as the patient),

I have recently stayed in the Northern General Hospital on Chesterman 1 ward for treatment with my heart and for diarrhea. I am Coeliac gluten free and on two mornings there was no cereal, bread i could eat or anything for breakfast. This made me very angry. For the meals you have to make out a menu for two days in front. I did not get what I ordered, no meal. They did baked potatoes and beans, not very nice.

I felt that when I went into hospital I was treated like I was different, because I had Coeliac, there were no biscuits when tea was brought around either.
