The shop can be found on the main hospital street on level 2. It is run by a team of volunteers and sells newspapers, magazines, books, sweets and snacks, toiletries, cards, toys and gifts and home knitted baby wear made by a team of knitters from wool donated to the shop.
The shop is open:

Money raised in both the shop and the coffee bar is donated to the Trust Charitable Fund.
The Chapel is on Level Two close to the main entrance. It is open every day for you to spend some quiet moments in peace. Everyone is welcome.
The Trust boasts an interdenominational Hospital Chaplaincy meeting the needs of patients, relatives, staff and visitors. Chaplains visit wards and departments across the Trust on a daily basis, when they are on hand to spend a few quiet moments with patients and anyone else who so wishes. The Chaplains are assisted by a group of Lay Visitors who also regularly visit patients. The Chaplains can also be contacted ‘out of hours’ if a patient asks to see them or if the nursing staff feel it would be beneficial.
The restaurant on Level 2 is open every day serving hot meals, snacks, hot and cold drinks. It is open for breakfast at 8.30am and closes at 6.30pm Monday to Friday and 6.15pm at weekends. The menu changes daily for lunch between 12.00 noon and 1.30pm and for evening meal from 4.00pm. The tables are easily accessible to wheelchairs. Outside of these times there is a selection of vending machines available, including one serving hot snacks.
The kitchens at Ormskirk also provide all the meals for over 150 patients. Patients are asked to complete menu cards each day from which the meals are prepared.
The food is freshly prepared and cooked for each meal, and wherever possible we try to source the ingredients from local suppliers wherever possible. We cater for special dietary needs including vegetarian, vegan, gluten free, diabetic, high protein, reducing diet, celiac, low residue and low potassium. We also provide Halal and Kosher meals and special meals at particular times of the year, such as Passover. If patients have particular dietary needs, they should discuss them with the ward staff.
