Hospital Food

Chilli and rice looks shocking.

I might be tempted by the pie though. Got all the elements of a good fry up if there are mushrooms packed in there.

Oh it's much improved since the nineties when I worked in a mental hospital. The staff canteen had a choice of trey mushes with the only recognisable foods being chips and peas! Needless to say I brought my lunch with me every day!;)

I think people should pay for their food in hospitals....maybe then they may offer up food that is more appealing, and less food would be wasted.

Free medical care sure, but why should the food be free?....school dinners are not free.

Last time I was in hospital (late 90s) I had a bleeding ulcer and was therefore 'Nil By Mouth' for the duration of my 4-day incarceration.

Looking at the shite they served my fellow inmates, that was most probably a blessing...

You should read the papers.

Infants will be getting free school dinners from next week. Go on, start a thread for the indignant masses.

:) Nice one Pinny - but the bar in Hartlepool General was adjacent to the morgue, so I gave it a miss seeing I was bleeding internally and didn't fancy ending up next-door. I did get bollocked for smoking tabs several times though.

I did actually make it to the NAAFI bar of an RAF hospital in the 80s when I had an operation on my nose.

Unfortunately I was spotted by a staff member from my ward who grassed me after one pint of lager and I was escorted back to my bed.

Got a right talking-to from the matron the next morning...

I'm not going to succumb to the click bait but my experience of hospital food consists of 2 stays my wife had. Both times I would have been embarrassed to feed the food to a dog.

yes, its 1/3 of the daily requirement for a man, and its one of the three meals a day...indeed, breakfast like a King, Lunch like a Prince and Dine like a pauper.

I note its on sale, not free for patients.

Im not sure what all the white stuff is though...tofu?..who knows what that is?

Was that to make your nose more pointy, so your Sopwith-Camel could go faster?

No Baron von Richthofen, it wasn't...!

I was in the army, but depending on your affliction, you could end in hospitals belonging to any of the 3 services.

The RAF one in Swindon specialised in ear, nose and throat surgery, and they tried - unsuccessfully if the truth be told - to sort out my bent conk, a birth defect that has resulted in me being a 'mouth-breather' to this day...!

Go on Pinny, fill yer boots...

Solidified fat I think.

Actually looking at it in purely calorie terms 1/3 of your daily requirement for £1.50 isn't that bad.

(although I'd take issue with the 2400 calories a day thing, but that's probably another, rather epic thread).

Lucky you ended up with the RAF, and didn't get a Royal Naval bumming!

Aye, very fortunate mate.

I've always preferred the dambusters to the backdoor-busters...
