Some comments from the event
"It was great to have the hard work of the whole catering team at RBH recognised in this way and to have the chance to discuss the importance of good food with The Prince and with NHS colleagues. It was a really enjoyable event."
Mike Duckett, catering manager at Royal Brompton Hospital
"The Prince was very approachable and at ease with the patients. I spoke to him about how we had piloted a lot of new interventions with food, including the use of red trays for patients who need help with eating".
Mary Madigan, sister on Elizabeth Ward
"He was a real Prince Charming. He asked me about the food and said I looked well for someone who had surgery recently. He also asked me about what I was reading – he was very open and asked lots of questions."
Glynis Becker, patient on Elizabeth Ward
"He was very spontaneous. He wasn't scheduled to meet me but he came across and chatted and was very friendly and approachable. He asked me if I was up and moving and I said that over here they get us moving the day after surgery."
Kathryn Yates, patient on Elizabeth Ward
“This is the best hospital food you can get – a guiding light and, I hope, the start of a wave of change across the NHS.”
Lord Peter Melchett, Policy Director of the Soil Association
