Our Services


Chaplains offer pastoral care, spiritual guidance, prayer and sacraments as appropriate to patients (and relatives and carers) on wards and units,

The Chaplains’ ministry in hospital is not only for people who go to church, who are religious or are believers.   Chaplains offer all people (including staff) care and concern.

Being in hospital can be an anxious time for many people, raising many questions.   The Chaplaincy Team may be able to help people come to terms with problems and help them through difficult times.  

Chaplains are there to comfort, strengthen and reassure.
