  • Yes, food is available for patients of the JPUH. The Trust’s meals are produced on site by a team of qualified chefs using locally sourced ingredients whenever possible. Patient menus are prepared in consultation with the Trust’s dietetic department so we can ensure they are nutritionally balanced, provide a choice and cover the dietary needs of our patients.

    Please note, the patient menu is not available for outpatients at the Trust. Food is available at Paget’s Café.
