Breast cancer survivor Vicky Ayech, said she had not eaten for 24 hours when she was in hospital for surgery on her breast.
The 67-year-old from Hertfordshire added:
I was taken up to the ward by 8.30pm after surgery on my breast - I was so hungry as I'd not eaten for 24 hours.
I was given a menu but didn't get any food until 11pm, and then it was only bread and jam.
After such an experience with nurses busy and impatient, I got myself discharged the next morning, earlier than was wise in retrospect.
