"Meal options at Wells Road Centre"

About: Forensic mental health / Low secure services

(as a staff member posting for a patient/service user),

Following a Seacole Ward meeting the following suggestions were raised by the patients

More choice of vegetables

Less chips, currently they are on the menu approx. 4 times per week, would prefer a healthier choice

A lighter meal choice at lunch time (cheese on toast, omlettes, jacket potatoes, filled wraps)

Fresh fruit is always available

Fresh salad bar is always available

Chefs could visit the ward
