The Food Hospital

LIVING – Tuesdays from 24 April, 8.30pm

In experiments conducted with strict scientific rigour, patients suffering from a range of medical conditions and symptoms are invited to attend The Food Hospital where they are prescribed specific diets to find out if their health problems can be alleviated or cured by the food they eat. At the hospital, patients have detailed consultations with a GP, a specialist consultant related to their condition and a leading NHS dietician before they are assigned particular foods, with advice about how to integrate them into their diets. The series follows the patients as they undertake their new dietary regime and attend follow-up appointments at the hospital where their progress is monitored.
