Improving your mealtime experience

Your mealtime experience is important to us

If you would like to tell us anything about your meals, including your likes and dislike please speak to Nursing staff as soon as possible. The sooner we understand your needs then the sooner we can contact the catering team who will be happy to help.

We regularly ask for feedback about our meal service. From time to time we may ask you to complete a questionnaire. If you would prefer you can use the feedback form in the Information about Food and Health in Hospital leaflet which is available from Nursing staff.

If you require this information in an accessible format, such as large print or braille, or in a community language, please ask ward staff.

Help and assistance with eating

Nursing staff will check to see if you require help with eating and drinking. They will be happy to help you cut up food, open packets or may stay with you to help you eat and drink.

In some wards we have ward volunteers who can make your mealtime experience easier and more comfortable. They will make sure you have everything you need, from condiments to the right cutlery, and can even spend time socialising with you.
