Hospital Shops and Cafés

Hospital Shops and Cafes from Royal Voluntary Service
Royal Voluntary Service is one of the UK’s largest hospital retailers with Shops, Cafés and Trolley services run by local staff and volunteers in hospitals across England, Wales and Scotland. Our Cafés provide tea and company to patients, hospital staff and visitors and are a welcoming place to take a break and our Shops serve convenient, good value refreshments and top-up shopping. Profits from sales in our Hospital Shops and Cafés help fund our work supporting the NHS.

We are at the forefront of making hospitals healthier places to eat and drink. Our Cafés provide exciting menus and serve healthy, nutritious food and drink options at fair prices, including a wide range of fruit and nut snacks, soups and broths, freshly prepared salads, sandwiches, stews and seasonal dishes using local produce, and allergy, intolerance and health condition-friendly items. Space for unhealthy items like crisps, confectionery and sugary drinks has been dramatically reduced.
