"Not enough variety in food and menus"

About: Nottinghamshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust / Inpatient mental health care

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

It was raised in community meeting that some patients on the ward feel that there is too many spicy dishes served and not enough meat and vegetable meals. Some feel that vegetarians are not catered for enough with regards to quorn products. Most people were in agreement that the menus are not changed often enough causing repetitive meals each week.

Thank you for taking the time to tell us about the food on the wards.

You don't mention which ward you are on. Would you be able to let us know so that we can pass this onto the right people?

In themeantime we can contact hotel services and pass on the comment for them to reply.

Many thanks for your feedback.

Thank you for raisng the concern raised from your ward community meeting.

There are a new set of menus being prepared by the catering department, the physical healthcare nurse and dieticians and patients via the community meetings will be consulted in the near future on these menus.

There is also opportunity for you to comment in the comments book, which is available for you to write in on a wednesday, during the Dining experience pilot the service is currently running.
