"Appalling food"

About: Prince of Wales Hospital

(as a friend),

A very good friend of mine recently posted pictures of the food served to a very young child.  

I believe the quality of the food provided was appalling. It became a social media joke, as meals were photographed and sent to social media. Who supplies the food and who is responsible for ensuring the seeming lack of nutrition?

Hospital food has been ridiculed for years. I believe I clearly see there have been no improvements to ensure the patient's nutrition is a factor to recovery and health.

Dear Foodie,

Thank you for taking the time to write to us regarding food in hospitals.

It’s well recognised that eating and drinking well whilst in hospital is important for all patients’ health and recovery. Food in NSW Health hospitals is supplied by HealthShare Food Services who have been informed of your concerns.

NSW Health provides menu standards for hospitals with respect to the range of food provided and to ensure adequate nutrition.

Thank you again for highlighting this important aspect of our patient care.

Kind regards,

Elizabeth Browne
Director of Shared Clinical Services
