Food at the Freeman Hospital in Newcastle is appalling in my opinion; it lacks quality and quantity, and is not appealing.
We all know that good nutrition is important to maintaining health, and even more so in people with illnesses. I think the variety and what is offered needs to be looked at. Sandwiches on two days were exactly the same. There were no snacks available for patients apart from biscuits. Patients often rely on friends and family visiting bring food to supplement the meagre hospital diet.
My mother has been a patient on NCCC at the Freeman Hospital all we can say that the Ward 35 under the management of Sister Angela Simpson and Sister Nicola Cosford the standard of care is outstanding friendly and approachable, the auxiliaries always have time the patients and visitors. The housekeeping team keep the ward spotless and chat patients bicycle around their work.
I think patient line is exorbitantly expensive, should bring back the dayrooms on wards, vending machines were drinks, or some kind of machine so that patients can make the all drinks if you want another. Need I say more?
