About this service

The chaplaincy team are here to provide pastoral and spiritual support to patients, families, and staff on all three hospital sites. Whether it’s a listening ear, colleague support, meeting a specific faith request, or organising a meaningful event, the team works flexibly and creatively to be ‘present’ and make a difference to all they meet.

We offer pastoral support for everyone. We respect and support people of all faiths or none, respecting their uniqueness and integrity. We are able to offer assistance to make appropriate contact for people of all faiths.

Each hospital has a chapel / quiet space providing a place for quiet reflection and prayer, and a place of refuge in the busy hospital environment. These are available for use by patients, staff and relatives.

The chaplaincy team work core hours of 8am to 4pm Monday to Friday, and outside these times, provide an emergency on-call provision every day of the year. The team is made up of experienced healthcare chaplains.

The chaplaincy office keeps some texts for the major world faiths and will happily lend them on request.
