Food in Hospital

We are committed to providing high quality food and drink as part of your hospital visit and we are constantly working to improve both the range and quality of the food and drink that you will be provided with.

New patient menus were launched in April 2018 as a result of extensive patient feedback and analysis of the most and least popular dishes. We have gone to great lengths to give patients exactly what they want and looked at what’s been most popular in the past and dropped the meals which patients were not so keen on.

Patients will be offered a standard continental breakfast with cereal/porridge, toast/bread roll and juice.

For lunch, there will be a light meal consisting of a soup and sandwich or a soup and filled jacket potato plus a cold dessert.  There will also be a hot meal option if patients prefer to choose this at lunchtime.

In the evening, patients can choose from a variety of hot main courses as well as a sandwich option.  In addition, dessert available such as fruit crumble and custard.

At each mealtime there will be a healthier eating choice as well as a high energy choice to meet the NHS Scotland Food In Hospitals Specification.

The new streamlined menu will also cut down on food waste in our hospitals.  Find out more on our Ordering your meals and menu info page.

It is important that you try to eat and drink as normal if you can while you are in hospital. If you have special dietary requirements we are unaware of please speak to a member of ward staff.

Our Catering Department want you to enjoy the food we provide and invite you to give feedback at any time during or after your stay.
