Head & Neck Cancer patients often have problems with eating. This can be due to a dry mouth, limited jaw opening from radiotherapy, a special plate in the mouth called an obturator or other reasons. They can require soft food with plenty of sauce/gravy.
The group is very pleased to have been awarded a cheque for the printing of a card for patients to present when they are visiting restaurants. The card has been endorsed by the NHS in the West Midlands and should be available at most hospitals in the area. It is hoped to eventually develop a new web site for patients to recommend restaurants, and for proprietors to advertise that they can adapt their menus to suit patients. Click on cards to enlarge.
