Meals and drinks

Each day we will ask you to make your food choices from the selection found in the Patients’ Menu Booklet kept at your bedside.

If you have a special diet or find eating difficult please tell your nurse straight away. Further advice from a dietitian is available. You can have your own food and drink brought in but please check first with your nurse.

Meals are served in the ward at the following approximate times:

7:30am to 8:30am
Midday to 1pm
Evening meal
5:30pm to 6:30pm

Tea, coffee or other hot drinks are served with your meals and also mid-morning, mid-afternoon and at about 8pm. Snacks are also available on the wards. Please ask about these if you think you would prefer this option.

We are unable to serve drinks on the wards for visitors but the hospital’s Bayview catering facilities are available to you and your visitors.
