Chef Prue, 80, vowed that the changes will make sure hospital food is “delicious, nutritious and nicely presented”.

She said: “Food is not only important to health, but to morale.”

Prue was among advisers who recommended upgraded kitchens and staff working overnight so a 24/7 service can be provided to all.

This could range from a drink and snack in the early hours to hot meals for hungry new mums and patients after a long fast due to surgery.

The review followed a deadly outbreak of listeriosis in hospitals last year — linked to pre-packed sandwiches and salads.

It also said that better communication between dietitians and caterers could provide patients with the right meals for recovery and cut food waste.

Health Secretary Matt Hancock said: “This impressive report shows the way to good hospital food for all — patients, staff and visitors.”
