The report says that NHS Lothian spends an average of £61 on patients' meals per week as compared to the Scottish average of £59.

According to The Scotsman newspaper, there are huge variations reported. "Highland spending just £42, the Borders £47, Fife and Greater Glasgow both spending £53, Lanarkshire £67, Ayshire & Arran and Argyll & Clyde £68, Shetland £143 and the Golden Jubilee Hospital spending £280," the report says.

The report was released just as Audit Scotland is beginning to take up the issue of hospital catering. According to some estimates the cost of meals per patient works out to be £8.40 er day.
