What I liked
The medical & nursing care I received were excellent
What could be improved
I was unhappy with the quality of some of the food I received during my short stay.
For instance, the roast beef sandwich given me was inedible.
The 'beef' looked synthetic & shiny as well as being grey/ brown in colour. It did not taste very nice.
My cod in sauce was very overcooked.
How can patients get better eating low quality food? I am glad I was not hospitalized for a long time.
It is no good sending the dietician to the ward before food is served. Patient feedback should be requested after the meal is served.All the other patients on my ward did not eat their omelets or roast beef lunches for the same reasons. What a waste of money! The supplier should be investigated.
