Hospital food campaign: Local food for local hospitals

Less than two-thirds of NHS Supply Chain hospital food is sourced from British farms.

As part of our campaign to change this, we look at how it is possible for local farms and hospitals to work together successfully.

Farmers Weekly reporter Robyn Vinter goes to Sussex to see how local farms and the local supply chain are putting food on patients’ plates in NHS hospitals in Sussex.
