Mealtimes and Catering

The ward operates a protected mealtime philosophy. Please support us by refraining from visiting or contacting the ward during these time periods unless absolutely necessary. Meals are ordered by menu cards the day before and are delivered on covered trays, except for breakfast which is served from a trolley. If you require a special diet please inform staff who will endeavour to accommodate your needs. In line with government recommendations we have protected meal times during which visiting is not allowed unless agreed by the nurse in charge.
