Eating fast food in hospital is one of the ill’s rare joys, don’t ban it

ONE of the few joys of staying in hospital is being able to nip out – or send a friend – and buy fried, buttery, fatty, crispy fast food. I once ran with a very overdue pregnant mate from the maternity ward to the nearby Pizza Hut. Dressed in a jacket over her regulation airy hospital gear and slippers, she demolished a massive deep pan cheese feast washed down with a bottle of coke. She said it was the best food she’d had for days. 

But the sods want that to stop:

The Academy of Medical Royal Colleges is calling for fewer fast food outlets near schools and a complete ban on unhealthy food in hospitals

What the hell is unhealthy if you’re already in hospital? That big bucket of fried chicken, that box of chips, that chicken burger and nachos, that bag of sweets might well be the only thing you’ve got left to look forward to. What kind of demonic tosspot bans a very ill man or woman from eating what they like?

The above photo of hospital goo was dished up by Hospital Notes, who documents some of the crap served to the sick in hospitals. Oh, for a KFC.
