What Do We Do?
A chaplain is here to offer you support at a time when maybe you feel a little vulnerable and uncertain. An admission to hospital is not something most of us would choose.
An unfamiliar place, new routines, strange faces and hi-tech machinery, when you are ill, can be a bit of a challenge, even a little frightening. The chaplain has time to listen to your concerns, offering you a listening ear. If this is what you want, have a word with a member of the ward staff on your arrival and they will arrange for a chaplain to visit.
Who Is It For?
For everyone, of any faith or none: it doesn’t matter if you’ve never been to church, and never intend to.
