Southampton General Hospital
The hospital chapel – Centre Block, D level
This is a large space accessible to all, from any faith or none. It can accommodate large services for patients and staff. There is also a quiet corner with a water feature, where you can gather for quiet reflection or prayer.
The side chapel – Centre Block, D level
This adjoins the main hospital chapel and is a more specific Christian space. Candles can be lit here, and there is a crucifix to aid reflection and prayer.
Male Muslim prayer room – Centre Block, D level
This is located just outside of the main chapel. It is regularly used for prayer, with wash facilities nearby.
Female Muslim prayer room – Centre Block, D level
This is accessed through the main chapel and to the left. This is well used throughout the day.
Please ask at the office for the access codes for the Muslim prayer rooms.
