A recent change in policy by The Gibraltar Health Authority means that relatives are now allowed to visit in-patients during meal times to help with feeding.

While the GHA is proud of the catering services it provides to patients and the work the nursing staff do in ensuring patients are properly nourished, it is also aware that some patients prefer a relative being on hand during meal times – a wish the GHA is happy to grant, whenever possible.

It is important to note that patient visits are allowed at the discretion of the Charge Nurse on duty; however, there may be occasions where, due to circumstances, access to wards has to be denied. Further information is readily available from the nursing staff during visiting hours.

The new catering facility at St Bernard’s Hospital now also provides meals to Ocean Views, Her Majesty’s Prison, St Bernadette’s, St Martins School, the Cancer Relief Centre and Bella Vista Dementia Day Centre. The new kitchens were “future-proofed” in their design, allowing for additional users, without need for further expansion of the facility.
