Hospital Food Needs Improvement to Meet the Nutritional Needs of the Patient

Inadequate nutritional care of patients of Scotland hospitals causing an imbalance in the overall treatment has lead to the formation of an official watchdog to ensure //that the standards of effective dietary care are met with.

Sadly, only 30% of the hospitals followed this practice and 20% of them did not have any concern about patient satisfaction.

Expert Opinion

The director of public reporting in health, Barbara Hurst said at Audit Scotland: "Hospital food was the key to the nutritional care of patients and helped them to get better.

"Boards need to do more to ensure patients are getting the nutritional care they need as a matter of priority."

"It is estimated that UK-wide, malnutrition costs the NHS £7.3bn a year.

Shona Robison, SNP health spokeswoman said that in spite of some progress in the report it
