Having enough to eat and drink is one of the most basic human needs. And yet we know from the Department of Health's Dignity in Care campaign, recent media articles, research reports and official complaints that some vulnerable people are not having this fundamental need met.
To address this issue thoroughly, the Department of Health has joined forces with a wide range of stakeholders - all committed to tackling this problem. Pooling their expertise and knowledge, the Department of Health together with the other Nutrition Summit organisations, listed in the action plan, have agreed a range of options and recommendations for how, collectively, they and government will tackle the agenda.
This joint Department of Health/stakeholder Action Plan is the result. It sets out the five key priorities for action, which were agreed by the Nutrition Summit stakeholders.
