Chaplaincy

A stay in hospital can be a worrying experience, both emotionally and spiritually. We offer comfort and support to all, regardless of faith or non faith.

Services provided

Chaplaincy staff aim to provide a service to all, regardless of beliefs or faith. A contact list of ministers of the world's main religions is maintained by the department. The hospital chaplains can be contacted 24 hours a day, via the ward staff, and are happy to have an informal chat or to be a listening ear. Details of services held in the chapel are provided in a bedside welcome pack. We also have a group of trained and supervised volunteers who visit the wards on a regular basis. If patients cannot easily get to the chapel services, then arrangements for them to receive bedside communion can be made.
