Subject:       Nitrites in hospital meals



I would like to know whether hospitals within your foundation trust a) nitrite-cured ham in their meals and b) other processed meats containing nitrites in their meals, including but not limited to bacon, salami or chorizo.




We can confirm that there are nitrites in the ham salads and corned beef pie that we provide to our patients.
