James Martin's ambition of seeing healthy, nutritious food served to patients everywhere steps up a gear as the brigade of top class chefs he's persuaded to help out start work in their local hospitals. James and Chris Tanner are tasked with creating new easy-to-swallow meals for stroke patients throughout Devon and Cornwall, Gaulton Blackiston is challenged with finding ways to generate more money to be spent on patients in Norfolk and Stephen Terry continues trying to tackle a surprising complication with a dish he wants to be put on the new Welsh menu. Meanwhile in Birmingham James shows the team how he'd like things done as he takes over as head chef for the day. And to show how easy it is to utilise fresh, local produce on the menu he takes the kitchen department on a trip to a nearby farmers' market.
