New blueprint aims to improve hospital food

8 April 2021

A group of NHS caterers, dietitians and nurses will lead on reviewing recommendations for more nutritious food for patients and staff, some of which can be adopted immediately.

Among the recommendations were digital menus and food ordering systems that can factor in a patient’s dietary and cultural requirements, as well as their nutritional needs.

It aims to improve communication between dietitians and caterers, reduce food waste and provide patients with the right food for recovery, according to the authors of the scheme.
