HAVING read last week’s letters on the food served in Worthing Hospital with interest, I have to say I agree with Caroline Fusciardi.
I spent an overnight stay in hospital last May and was dismayed at the food available.
I had a sandwich at lunchtime which was fine although that came from the League of Friends café as I was too late for lunch after my op. One evening meal and lunch the next day was enough for me, as I couldn’t finish it as it was so unappetising.
I had a bowl of cereal and some toast and butter for breakfast there was no jam or marmalade offered. I simply filled up on jelly and ice cream for lunch while waiting to be discharged. I couldn’t wait to get home for some fresh fruit and vegetables. I did feel sorry for those who had to stay in hospital for longer and was concerned at how they would build up their strength to aid their recovery.
