Its report says compulsory nutritional standards are needed to ensure patient meals improve.

It warned there had been little change in the past two decades despite numerous initiatives, many fronted by celebrity chefs.

Katherine Murphy, chief executive of The Patients Association, said patients regularly contacted their helpline about poor standards of food in hospital.
