Berwick Infirmary has the best hospital food in Northumbria Healthcare Trust, a survey has revealed.

In a survey of hospital food quality, Berwick received a rating of 97.5%, which ranks it above other Northumbria Healthcare Trust hospitals.

Wansbeck General Hospital achieved 90.43% and Alnwick Infirmary got 92.39%.

The patient-led questionnaire was compiled in conjunction with mandatory food standards being launched in the NHS for the first time.

The aim of this is to provide a better service for both staff and patients.

Patients will be given a food plan that fits to their individual needs to ensure that everyone is getting the right balance of nutrients to aid a good recovery.

As part of the new scheme, fresh fruit and tap water must be readily available to patients and fish served twice a week.
