What we provide
We have a chapel and multi-faith prayer rooms at both hospitals for quiet prayer and reflection - see their locations below. They may be used by our patients, their relatives/carers and our staff. If you wish to use a prayer room for a religious or pastoral reason, such as Shabbat, please contact us.
Please let us know if you want any spiritual care resources, such as a bible, rosary, prayer mat, prayer cards or holy books.
If you are staying on one of our wards, a chaplain can bring Communion to you, or pray with you, annoint you, or listen to your concerns. Please contact the team, or ask your nurse to arrange a visit.
You might find it helpful to register your faith/belief when you arrive at hospital. This can be done at the same time you give your contact details.
