"A & E - sunday 20th September"

About: Lincoln County Hospital

Just to say thank you to the staff at Lincoln county a&e yesterday. I was treated for a rib injury in a very courteous and efficient manner. It occurred to me that the vending machine supply the traditional sweet and sugary or savoury and salty snacks. My suggestion is that you consider introducing more healthy socks i.e. fruit, salads. You have a captive audience and m besides giving patients a healthy option may introduce them to new healthier foods!

Dear Peter

Thankyou for posting these comments regarding your recent visit to A&E. We will follow up your suggestion regarding the vending machine with the supplier as I agree we should be promoting more healthy options to visitors of the hospital.
