Food was excellent. The first day after the operation I ate nothing, just water. The next day I had a really cool lunch (pork steak with barley-shaped pasta, apple, compote with peaches, cream) and excellent dinner (chicken with potatos cooked in the oven, yogurt, compote with peaches, cream). It was really good and my mother agreed because she tried it before me to ensure that it was cooked properly.
Haven't been in a UK hospital, although my ex (from Aberdeen) was a student nurse and her mother was the BNA agent in Aberdeen. Maybe, this is why I like nurses
