Weekend Catering services extended at Daisy Hill
20/02/2014Weekend catering services in Daisy Hill Hospital are being enhanced with the introduction of longer opening times and a move to a more convenient location.
The Ground floor Coffee Bar in Daisy Hill Hospital will soon be opening at weekends, providing a more accessible and extended service for staff and visitors.
On the first weekend of March, the catering service provided at weekends is moving from the main dining room to the Ground Floor Coffee Bar, near the main entrance and will be open from 8.30 am to 5.30pm on Saturdays and Sundays.
Anita Carroll, Southern Trust Assistant Director of Acute Services said: “We have decided to relocate catering services at the hospital to provide a more convenient place for visitors and staff to buy food and drinks at weekends.
Until now, the catering service at weekends has been provided from the hospital dining room. The dining room is open at weekends for limited periods as only small numbers of staff and visitors use it. For the greater convenience of visitors and staff, we have decided to relocate the catering services from the lower ground floor dining room to the Ground Floor Coffee Bar and extend the opening hours.”
A range of beverages, hot and cold snacks and meals are available at the Coffee Bar on Saturdays and Sundays and food prices are the same as they were in the staff dining room. Additional seating is available in rooms near to the Coffee Bar for visitors and staff to use.
