It was interesting to hear that in your experience there is too little variety with the food on the ward. Maybe this is something you can raise in a community meeting?

I will pass on your comments and ask if there can be further discussion around this issue.

Thank you for taking the time to comment.

We have recently changed our menu choices after consultation with patients and are actively seeking feedback on everyone’s food experience. I will take your comments to our next monthly patient environment meeting where the menus will be discussed between Ward Managers, Independent Advocacy and Hotel Services.

We have also introduced patient feedback forms to help us receive your comments both good and not so good on the food that you choose from our menus.

Thank you, we really appreciate all comments.
