Chaplains, are a valuable resource for patients, families, and staff particularly in times of uncertainty, bereavement or crisis.

We have Chaplains who support patients and their families across a board range of faiths. Our Chaplains visit the wards daily and are available for after hours if:

  • you're anxious, grieving or concerned about surgery
  • you've received an unexpected outcome and would like to talk it through
  • you're exploring life’s meaning as a result of health
  • you'd like to have an open discussion and get support dealing with end of life concerns.

If you miss them when they visit your ward, you can call them.
