Chaplaincy

Our chaplaincy team works alongside patients, staff and relatives to provide support and spiritual care. Trained chaplains and volunteers are available to spend time with anyone who needs a listening ear or would like to talk through their experience.

Spiritual care recognises the needs of a person when faced with trauma, ill health or sadness. This can include emotional support, prayer or a quiet space to reflect.

Our chaplains are also available for religious care. They offer can contact faith representatives on your behalf and provide religious support (anointing, emergency baptism, pastoral care).

We also provide support for our staff members and give advice around spiritual and religious care.

Contact us

Our chaplains provide a 24 hour on-call service across the Trust. There is a named chaplain for each clinical area of the Trust, known as link chaplains. While all members of the chaplaincy team can visit anywhere, link chaplains work closely with their specific areas to provide relevant support.

If you'd like us to visit you by your bedside, you can contact us on 023 8120 8517. You can also be referred to us by members of staff, relatives or by your local faith community.
