During your stay at Kingston Private Health, meals and refreshments will be served in your room by a member of our friendly support staff.

At Kingston Private Health, we recognise the importance of diet in assisting with your recovery so we ensure a wide variety of choice across our menus. Our menus have been nutritionally assessed to ensure they meet the guidelines of the British Dietetic Association for hospital menus and are carefully planned by our on-site chef to provide nutritional and culinary satisfaction.

We have an inpatient menu for our guests staying overnight and an alternative menu for those who are with us for a shorter period. A young person’s menu is also available. A selection of hot and cold beverages are available throughout the day on request.

We also cater for special dietary requirements, and if you would like to discuss any of these, our dietician will be happy to support in this. Our catering team will also be delighted to offer your visitors room service on request.

When the full menu is not suitable for you in the post-operative stage or at certain other times during your stay related to your medical condition, an alternative light menu will be offered, as appropriate. Your nurse will advise you on the suitability of certain food choices to reflect any medically necessary constraints.

Special diets and allergies

Please let us know if you have any special dietary requirements or food allergies at the earliest opportunity.  Some hospital food items may contain nuts or derivatives of nut products and other allergens. The hospital holds a folder which highlights all the allergens from our daily menus. Our staff are able to advise on the content of each food item as required and will be very happy to discuss particular dietary needs.

Your views are very important to us and allow us to continually review and improve the service we deliver. If you have any comments regarding the catering service please ask to speak to the duty chef or kindly complete the patient satisfaction questionnaire given to you on admission.
