Rankings of hospital care according to the quality of the food they serve will help improve the transparency of the NHS, the Health Secretary has said.
Speaking as the Department of Health launched a crackdown on hospital food, Jeremy Hunt said:
We are making the NHS more transparent, giving patients the power to compare food on wards and incentivising hospitals to raise their game.
Many hospitals are already offering excellent food to their patients and staff. But we want to know that all patients have nourishing and appetising food to help them get well faster and stay healthy, which is why we're introducing tough new mandatory standards for the first time ever.
