Brexit: Prepare food shortages in hospitals if Britain crashes without a deal from the EU

Health leaders are preparing for hospitals to stop purchasing imported foods for patient meals if the UK fails without an EU agreement.

Caterers were ordered to search for "substitute foods to maintain nutrition balance" of the meals. Fears that stocks will be disrupted by a no-deal Brexit show a government letter.

Also schools, the armed forces and "any kind of public catering" will be affected, it is said in a committee of the deputies.

The director of the public sector catering service said he was "very, very worried" that supplies would be affected, even if the backup plans would work for several weeks.
