    • For each calendar year over the last five years, how many meals has the NHS Foundation provided for its patients? Unfortunately we are unable to provide response as the Trust do not record this figure.  This is not tracked digitally or on paper and the meals come from different sources and through different methods. 
    • Does the NHS Foundation currently have on its menu, food options which are suitable for vegans, vegetarians, and people with coeliac disease? Yes, we have menus for the options and diet coding available for all patient menu options
