Jonathan Ashworth comments on the government’s review of hospital food

Jonathan Ashworth, Labour’s Shadow Health Secretary, commenting on the government’s review of hospital food, said:

“Matt Hancock promised this review months ago and incompetence is why it has taken so long to be launched.

“Years of austerity mean that some hospitals are only spending close to £3 per patient a day on meals for patients – it’s an utter disgrace. Labour will invest in hospital catering, enforce mandatory minimum standards and bring catering back in-house.”
