The hospital chaplaincy is here for everyone – patients, relatives and staff – whether you would describe yourself as religious or not.
Coming into hospital can be a very anxious time. Worries about illness, operations, loved ones and many practical matters can affect us. A Chaplain is someone who is available to listen to you, to offer you support and, should you wish, pray with you.
The Chaplains can also help you to make contact with a leader of your own faith.
The Chaplains are assisted by teams of volunteers who visit the wards and are willing to listen and talk with you. Whatever your beliefs or lifestyle, your opinions will be respected.
There is a multi-faith chapel in both our hospitals, where you may come and be quiet, whatever your viewpoint of life and whatever your religion. They are open all the time and are places for peace, contemplation and affirmation. Both the chapels are located just off the main entrances of our hospitals.
