Food is one of the most basic human needs for healthy wellbeing and survival, yet too many hospitals fail to give nutritional care enough priority in their day-to-day practice. So, why isn't more being done to stamp out this problem once and for all? Three years on from the launch of Age Concern and Help the Aged's Hungry to be Heard campaign to raise awareness of this issue, we're still hearing shocking stories from relatives about older people still not getting the right food and support they need to eat in hospital.
