Looks good, shame it's broccoli again but broccoli is very good for you and contains lots of calcium.Also like the lack of spillage on the plate edges... care has been taken as to presentation.
That actually looks very good.... I still think it is a conspiracy to ensure you only put good comments about hospital food though...lol xx enjoy
yey dont look half bad for a change matey scrumps xx
wow, what a difference being a private patient makes in an NHS hospital.
Apparently there is a hospital policy to up the protein and quality of food for very long-term patients. Hmm... perhaps it's a new policy.
This looks great! It's making me hungry
well well well , food that looks good and tastes good ?way to go !!!!! but isnt this the menu they said you can have for the rest of the week ? what happens then ? back to the old menu?dont let it happen dude .i dont think your senses will stand for it .rhonda,usa
TM, I am sure you will agree that if they upped the protein and quality from day one of a patient's stay then there wouldn't be so many long term patients. Mad economics.
I agree completely and it was the whole point of me starting this blog. I wanted to carry on working and do something useful. Who knows?
Funny how spuds in their coats look soo much more inviting. Im glad to see they've finally got it right... Enjoy
Couldn't agree more.If they'd fed you properly in the first place you'd have been out of there earlier, with no suspected further infection and on your way to walking properly again.And yes .. when did this policy of more protein and healthy food start .. are they saying the food doesn't have Enough protein already? Surely not .. COFF
I'm sure the blog didn't influence them!
WOW! That looks fabulous! It is amazing what they can do when they try! I am not sure why they think they only need to up the protein in LONG TERM patients tho. I can't see the logic there. Surely we are all fully aware of the need for good nutrition from the outset? Between you and the Daily Mail, I really hope that the people in power in these large hospitals and health authorities start to take notice. Not being able to eat the food for a couple of days is unlikely to hurt most of us BUT stays of more than that and care needs to be taken for all. The elderly and the undernourished to start with need care from the moment they arrive! Keep blogging!
"I'm sure the blog didn't influence them!"You can just imagine it, can't you?PP ward receptionist: That's the 6th phonecall I've had from private patients on the waiting list who are worried about the quality of food here. They all mentioned a blog by some bloke in traction up in the bone infection ward. Of course I didn't let on that he's here. Some of the callers said that if they get fed muck like that, then they will transfer to another hospital and take their BUPA funding with them.Ward manager: Damn! That bloody blogger is a blasted nuisance. I'll mention it at the ward managers' meeting.Later at the meeting.Director of Nursing: Look, we can't afford for this to get out. If we lose all that BUPA income for elective surgery we may not be able to afford our 5% payrise next year.OK. Give the whinging git the option of the PP menu for the rest of his stay. Once he starts posting photos of some decent meals, people will lose interest in the blog and we can put this nasty little episode behind us.TM, sorry to hear that your leg is still painful. I hope you get some good news about it soon.
Keep going with the blog I say TM, could this mean you are permanently on the PP menu now, *whoop* *whoop* Remember its not what you know....Jolly good luncheon TM, too posh for puddings though, now that is not on ;)
This looks just as bad as the unsavory dishes to me...???
