Chaplains are professionals specifically trained in pastoral care in a hospital setting. Chaplaincy ministry is about expressing respect and care, listening in a compassionate way and helping to create a space which recognises each person’s spiritual needs.

Our chaplains visit the wards daily and you may see one of us during your stay. If we miss you on our visits, or you would like to see a different minister of religion, please ask a nurse to contact the chaplaincy department.
