I have been a volunteer on Cherry Ward Highbury Hospital (formerly B50 at the QMC Nottingham) for several months and my role is to capture patient feedback about the service provided by the ward and services provided to the ward.
Since B50 moved to Cherry Ward many of the patients have consistently complained about the food provided. Main complaints have been around the lack of variety, repetition in foods provided, that its dry and bland. The patients used to enjoy the food at the QMC and a favourite was the soup; at a meeting in June patients described the mushroom soup in particular as being 'like wallpaper paste! ' Patients would also like to have ice cream which was a daily feature at the QMC.
Ward staff invited me to stay and try the meal and check out for myself what I thought of the meal. I can only say I agree with the concerns the patients have raised and would like to see the hospital caters working with the patients to make changes.
