Now this is good news for many staff and thousands of patients, as a plan has been submitted for a permanent fruit and veg stall to be located outside Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Woolwich beneath a shelter.
This is a god send for many. A few years ago I’d have thought what’s the big deal? Then I had to visit often and stay there for a week. The isolation of the hospital and limited access to good food on site really hits home.
There’s some ok canteens on site, an expensive WHSmith and not much else. Being a former military hospital the site is not exactly close to shops and amenities. There’s a co-op when walking towards Eltham and there’s the option of walking into Woolwich town centre but neither are ideal. Having healthy food at the entrance will be a massive improvement.
