this has sod all to do with doctors, but anyway - after my son was born
the meal being served on the post natal ward was roast beef with all the usual stuff - potatoes, veg, yorkshire pudding. And it was the single best meal I have eaten in all my life. I spent the whole afternoon marvelling about the amazing quality of catering in the NHS and wondering at the folk who complained about hospital food (in between gazes at my little screaming bundle of shit and jaundice).

the next day, the meal was apparently cold vomit on rice. I think 3 days in labour, copious vomiting due to the pain relief, and the sheer exhaustion that accompanies childbirth had left me with some sort of sensory deprivation which made the food edible.

Also, the best slice of toast I've ever eaten was served up by the NHS too - again, after baby was born. I got a slice of cold toast with marmite. Food of the gods. All photos of me after he arrived have me holding the baby with one hand and the toast with the other, tits out, blood everywhere, needles in both arms - and gazing adoringly at either toast or baby. Needless to say those pictures have not gone in the album...

Best tea and toast in the world
Post-birth NHS toast really is the best. I didn't believe it until I tried it.
I had a C-section so I also got a bed bath. That too was fantastic, although being off my tits on morphine may have skewed my judgement.

Stafford hospital no less and the food was hit and miss. Awesome one day, like eating a dead mexican the next!
