Patient Catering

Estates and Facilities know how important food is to the patients across Leicester's Hospitals, both to aid recovery and to make their stay as enjoyable as possible. Because of this we are constantly reviewing the meals offered to patients to ensure the food provided is both nutritious and tasty.

In March, 2018, a refreshed Steamplicity menu was launched at across all three hospital sites.  

The hospital also offers specialist menus for patients with specific medical requirements.  Please speak to a Catering Assistant, Ward Hostess or a member of the nursing team if you have any questions.

We are aware that families may wish to bring in comfort food for their relatives.  Before you bring food in, kindly read these guidelines, which do not apply to cakes (unless they are cream filled), sweets, biscuits, chocolate or fresh fruit.
