Re: Food in hospitalIf people had to pay for food they probably wouldnt bother as they may not feel like eating.Ive been in hospital several times and am not sure that Id want to pay for food.Most times I had a choice,so not so bad,but last ward I was in everybody was given the same meal,it was minced lamb with potatoes and veg.I asked what was the choice if you were a vegetarian and was told there was only Curry.As I did not fancy either offering I went without food that night ,and would definitely not have paid for it
Re: Food in hospitalAlways try and get the ambulance to take you to Doncaster Royal Infirmary, the food is absolutely scrumptious.....
Re: Food in hospitalThe trouble is many people are so fussy about food the times i have been in hospital i have never had any complaints about the meals. People should be thankful for what they recieve and stop whinging at least your getting the chance to have a meal there are a lot of poor sods out there in the wide world starving.

Re: Food in hospitalThe food when I was in hospital was absolutely dire, I simply could not eat it. My family would bring me in packs of M&S sandwiches, and biscuits. I am certainly not a fussy eater and have no allergies or aversions, they couldn't even serve a decent cup of tea.
Re: Food in hospitalNutrition is part of recovery. So if people had to bring food in as they do in other countries we may waste money on medicine and treatment only to find they end up staying in hospital too long because they have inadequate nutrition. A daily meal or three doesn't cost much relative to the hospital bed you're on but does aid recovery if it's edible!
