We believe our patients deserve high quality, enjoyable and nutritious food, to make their stay as pleasant as possible and to aid their recovery.
We have a main restaurant for hospital visitors and staff offering a wide range of hot and cold food, drinks and snacks, as well as a number of vending machines available 24/7.
The Royal Voluntary Service (RVS) runs three shops around the hospital.
These are located at:
They sell a variety of items including toiletries, food, newspapers and magazines.
There is also a Royal Mail post-box, located in the main hospital entrance.

Although there are public disabled toilets at the hospital, there is not currently a toilet with a hoist facility for use by visitors.
Wheelchairs are available at the main entrance for use by patients to get to different medical departments and wards.
These are £1 coin-operated, just like a supermarket trolley, and are available between 8:30am and 4:30pm, Monday to Friday.
Customer care assistants are also available to help patients and visitors get to departments and wards.
Please ask about this at the main reception desk.
Access to the main hospital at night is via the main entrance and these doors are locked between 10:30pm and 5:30am.
During that time, anyone who wants to come in will be asked by staff for the reason they are visiting and will have to sign in and out at the reception desk.
Checks are also made with wards and departments before anyone is allowed to visit at these times.
We are a breastfeeding friendly organisation, and you are welcome to feed your child where you wish.
In addition, there are special areas around the hospital where you can feed or change your child if you are more comfortable. Please ask at main reception for more details.
