Taking the Pulse: Hospital Food Campaign

The College of Medicine is a supporter of the Hospital Food Campaign which has now published its report ‘Taking the Pulse’ which uses London as a test case for the quality of food in hospitals.

You can download and read the whole report on the Sustainweb site here. You can see some of the unappealing food served in hospitals and photographed by patients here.

Prue Leith writes:

“Hospital food has a deservedly poor reputation and NHS patients and staff deserve better. This report shows that at the moment most hospitals are not serving fresh, tasty and wholesome food so we must have legal standards, like those already in place for school food and prison food, to make sure good food is a priority in our hospitals.”
