Every year, the NHS spends about £600 million on food and catering services, mostly in hospitals. But hospital food is often considered to be of poor quality, and the hospital retail environment unhealthy.
There is an urgent need to improve the quality of hospital food for patients, visitors and staff to make it more healthy and sustainable.
Unappealing food leads to high wastage and higher levels of malnutrition. Better hospital food leads to shorter hospital stays and healthier, happier patients and staff.
