A review of NHS hospital catering will aim to restore public confidence in the food served to patients, visitors and NHS staff, a Department of Health report states. Every year, the NHS serves more than 140 million meals to patients across the country. The quality and nutritional value of these meals can vary substantially. Alongside this, new national standards for healthcare food for patients, staff and visitors will be developed by NHS England, NHS Improvement and Public Health England (PHE). The new standards will reflect government nutrition advice, as outlined in PHE Eatwell guide.
