The Spiritual Care Centre

The Spiritual Care Centre is situated on the first floor near the bridge. It is always open and is a place of quiet for everyone.

The Chaplaincy Department has three Chaplains on the Team from different Christian Denominations, together with a number of volunteers who visit round the wards and help to bring patients along to services in the Spiritual Care Centre (formerly Chapel).

The Chaplain's role is to help cater for the Spiritual, Religious, and Pastoral needs of patients, relatives and staff. Chaplains are on call 24/7 so please contact us if we can help in any way on ext.4543 or bleep the on call Chaplain via the Switchboard.

Our Chaplains are always available for prayer and spiritual support. Anglican, Roman Catholic or Free Church clergy are appointed by the hospital. Contacts for other faiths are available via the Chaplains.

Please ask a member of staff who will help you. On Sunday at 11am there is an Interdenominational Service with Holy Communion for staff, patients and relatives. Helpers are available to assist patients to and from the Centre if needed. Holy Communion is also available on the wards. Please ask the nursing staff to inform the hospital chaplain. Gideon New Testaments are placed in each bedside locker - please tell a member of staff if it is missing. Copies of the Koran are also available, together with other Holy Books, for example the Jewish, Buddhist or Hindu faiths.
