Our Hospitality

Food at St Luke's Hospital is a very important part of everyone's day - its the fuel to help people recover, the opportunity to try new foods and is one of the most important social times when patients gather together.

For many of us, we remember special occasions and events that feature eating with friends or family, or remember our favourite foods from our childhood.  As a way to give us energy, help repair bodies and unite us socially, food is important to everyone's day.  For that reason, we take the time to get to know what our patients preferences are for each meal and combine this with their dietary requirements.

We cater for all diets - some patients may have difficulty swallowing or with chewing, so we can ensure they have food that is easy for them to eat.  Some patients have food intolerances or allergies or may prefer not to eat certain foods on a personal basis.  All these factors are discussed by our Head Chef Michael Tracy with our patients on a daily basis to ensure we are providing the best meals and nutrition at each meal.  During the Covid pandemic, as part of our infection control procedure, Michael talks with the nursing team to understand what each patient would like for their meals. 

Our team also enjoy cooking for special events in the Hospital around events, holidays and celebrations.  Birthday cakes are always something the team love to make.  We can organise afternoon tea for celebrations with friends and family.
