Food and beverage

We are concerned with the total well-being of our patients and staff and that, of course, includes what they eat and drink. We aim to provide, every day of the year, a balanced range of appetising and nutritious food and drinks, enabling patients and staff to have a choice that reflects their preferences and needs.

Food and beverage services

  • We want to make you feel at home while you are at FV Hospital. Eating and drinking properly will help you fight infection, maintain your weight, respond to your treatment and heal more quickly. Our chef and his team produce breakfast, lunch and dinner for your enjoyment, delivered to the room or treatment area, along with two drink and snack rounds for inpatients; in the afternoon and late evening. The varied menu on offer, devised in consultation with nutritionists and doctors, includes both Asian and Western options and salads and sandwiches to allow for all tastes and preferences.
  • Special and therapeutic diets: The food and beverage team works closely with the medical team to ensure that all food prepared for patients conforms to any special diet prescribed by the doctors (for example, low salt, low fat, diabetic). The team will also be available to advise you on these diets, to make sure that you understand the requirements.
  • Special preferences: Our chefs will work with special care groups (for example, elderly, new mothers, children) and with individual patients, to cater for individual dietary, cultural or other special preferences.
  • Children’s menu: Children, especially sick children, do not always want to eat the same meals or the same portion sizes as adults. Our team has devised some special menu options that we hope will help them to relax and feel comfortable during their stay at FV Hospital.

  • Food Hygiene: We take hygiene very seriously and the food and beverage department is no exception.
