Can the NHS go from Hell’s Kitchen to MasterChef?


I find it incomprehensible that there is little or no fresh veg on hospital menus. We bang on about eating fresh fruit and veg, then don't serve any of it. Also, if a patient is showing signs of malnutrition, we bleep the dietitian and they recommend supplements! These are bound to cost more an both the short and long term. Would it not make more sense to feed patients tasty nutritious meals that will make them feel satisfied and well fed, at the same time as meeting their nutritional needs and aiding healing! (Incidentally, this would mean patients may be discharged sooner, again saving money and that seems to be the main focus of the NHS these days!)
