"My stay"

About: Bradford Royal Infirmary

Ward 22

Excellent nurses very caring and very good at what they do, they are always very busy I don't know how they keep going on a 12hour shift.

I've got to say I'm not a good patient and I don't like being in hospital I was ready for signing myself out when one of the the junior doctors came and sat down to talk to me they helped me make the right decision to stay with additional medication.

The doctor my specialists did everything they could to do the angiogram the following day so I could go home.

My care throughout my stay was excellent from everyone involved.

I do think changes needed to be made to the food.

A lot of the food was over salty and then salt was given with every meal, some things had too much fat/oil in them, we are all encourage to eat brown bread rather than white but to have brown bread sandwich came with cheese in it, couldn't the chicken or turkey been in brown rather than white bread.

I was on the cardiology ward where salt and fat should be reduced

Response from Bradford Royal Infirmary

Thank you for taking the time to give feedback about your stay on ward 22. The comments you have made about the clinical staff are really appreciated and I will make sure that they are shared with the team.

I am sorry to hear that your experiences with the food were not as positive. I do want to assure you that the catering team work closely with the hospital dieticians and our food suppliers to provide nutritious tasty meals that comply with the Government guidelines on healthy eating. I have shared your comments with the catering team who are happy to take on board your comments about the range of sandwiches and will look into providing an alternative to white bread on some of the choices we offer.

The tender with the meal providers is due to be reviewed later this year and as part of that contract we will be ensuring that healthy standards which include lower salt, lower fat and lower sugar will be part of the evaluation process. Thank you.
