Some hospital meals 'cost only 86p'

NHS hospitals are spending as little as £2.57 to feed and water patients a day - or 86p a meal - with Harrow Primary Care Trust (£2.75) and North West London Hospital NHS Trust (£3.13) among those spending the least.

A massive disparity in what is spent on patients around the country was revealed by the new statistics compiled by the NHS Information Centre.
