recently I went with my wife to our local hospital, again there was no coeliac friendly food available.
In a recent hospital stay in a Birmingham hospital, I was admitted with a serious (but not related to coeliac) illness. They served me a meal, beef, carrots, yorkshire pudding, and thick gravy.
I explained I was a coeliac, and couldnt eat it. They brought me ha half a jacket potato, well over done and dried up, with a quarter of a tomato for decoration.
When it was visiting time my wife heard of this, and went to chat to the staff about it 'for future reference'.
SHE WAS SENT HOME TO MAKE ME A S A N D W I C H IF I WAS GOING TO BE SO FUSSY.
(ward 13 Salt unit)
She then went by bus at quite a lot of expense, its a fair way from Tamworth, and fetched me coeliac bread, with prescription label on it, (proof) and was told by the sister well we can do him some toast then while he is in here. My wife has power of attorney and we went home ....at her risk. My Gp was great about it. He helped my wife to get me well at home.
Shouldnt something be done to make staff more considerate and aware please.
