When you are in hospital, each day you or your carers can choose what you will eat for the following day from a menu.

Printed menus are available in English, Arabic, Chinese (simplified), Croatian, Greek, Italian, Macedonian, Spanish, Turkish and Vietnamese. 

We provide six meals and snacks a day, at approximately the following times: 

  • Breakfast - 8.00 - 9.00am
  • Morning tea - 10.20 - 10.45am
  • Lunch - 12:00 - 1:00pm
  • Afternoon tea - 2.00 - 2.30pm
  • Dinner - 5:30 - 6:30pm
  • Supper 7.00 - 7.30pm 

If you would like to bring in food prepared at home for a patient, it is important that you speak to the ward nurse, dietitian or speech pathologist first. Food from home may not always be suitable due to a person’s medical condition, increased risk of infection or swallowing problems.

Please ensure that the food is prepared, stored and transported in a safe and hygienic manner.
