Meals in Wards

We provide patients with a breakfast, lunch, and evening meal, snacks during the day as well as regular hot and cold drinks. 

A continental style breakfast is provided by ward staff, while lunch and dinner is freshly prepared by our catering department. For both lunch and dinner, you will have a choice of starter, main course, and dessert. You will also have choice over size of the portion.

You can expect your meals to be served during the following times dependent on which ward you are in:

Breakfast - 7.00am to 8.30am
