This article presents a study to discover the nutritional services available and workload of hospitals in the northern region. Nutrition services in the northern region are still insufficient and under resourced despite nationally agreed targets. Malnutrition is commonly found in hospital inpatients; intervention studies suggest this is an independent and reversible prognostic factor. Obesity and associated metabolic syndrome are perhaps the most pressing medical problem in Great Britain. The Northern Nutrition Network has been established to improve nutrition services across the region.
