Duration: 45 minutes

James Martin and his brigade of chefs put into action the changes they've planned for hospitals across the UK. In Birmingham that means trying out an ordering system James believes will solve some of the kitchen's fundamental problems. But to succeed the whole team has to work together like never before - and even if it works, can it really make any difference to the amount of wasted food? To prove fresh food doesn't have to cost more, James joins chefs Paul Merrett and Lawrence Keogh as they try and improve the choice for patients at London's Royal Free. And James and Stephen Terry meet the health minister for Wales to see what she makes of the dishes they've come up with for the All-Wales menu - and see if she can resolve a situation with suppliers that seems absurd.
