Prue_Leith_20181206.jpg?profile=RESIZE_710xCook and broadcaster will help ‘root and branch’ official review of NHS catering

The Great British Bake Off judge Prue Leith is to advise a government review of hospital food, following the deaths of six people due to a listeria outbreak.

A “root and branch” review launched by the Department of Health and Social Care on Friday will examine whether the number of hospitals catering in-house can be increased.

The health secretary, Matt Hancock, called for the comphrensive review in June, when six people died after contracting listeria from pre-packaged sandwiches and salads either bought on site or given out by hospital staff.
