Parent and carer meal vouchers

We know it can be challenging for parent/carers to leave their child’s bedside to make or buy themselves something to eat. To help with this, we now offer meal vouchers that allow parents/carers to purchase a meal from our inpatient food trolleys.

Please note: Patient meals are our priority. Parents/carers may be asked to wait until after all patients have received their meals.

Meal choice is limited to what is available on the trolley at scheduled meal times (breakfast, lunch and dinner).

The voucher holder is responsible for selecting suitable meal items if they have specific dietary needs.

Purchasing meal vouchers

Vouchers are sold at the Cashiers Office on Level 2 of the hospital on weekdays from 8am to 5pm. There is no limit to the amount of meal vouchers parent/carers can buy.

Vouchers cost $7.50 each and entitle the holder to one meal from the inpatient unit food trolley. Payment cannot be accepted on the ward.

On weekends and public holidays, vouchers can also be purchased at the ‘Amigo to Go’ convenience store on Level 2.

Cash, EFTPOS and credit cards are accepted at the Cashiers Office and Amigo to Go.

Where can they be used?

The vouchers can be used in all overnight inpatient wards at the hospital. The voucher user must collect their meal from the food trolley.

If you are able to leave the ward, the vouchers can also be redeemed at the ‘Amigo to Go’ convenience store on Level 2 and food outlets in the Level 2 food court for meals to the value of $7.50. They cannot be used at Sumo Salad or Hudson’s Café.

The vouchers do not expire, however unused vouchers can be refunded at the Cashiers Office on Level 2 on weekdays 8am to 5pm if not used while your child is in hospital.

If you have any questions about the vouchers, please contact the nurse team leader on your ward.
