Chaplaincy

As chaplains and faith representatives, the chaplaincy service is here to support you in your time of need.

It is available to everyone in our hospital community – patients, carers, visitors and members of staff. The service covers the Manor Hospital, Palliative Care Centre and Dorothy Pattison Hospital. Chaplaincy service members are from various faith traditions but are here for you whether you are a person of faith or not.

The service is supported by volunteers and represents the following faiths:

  • Christian (Ecumenical and Roman Catholic)
  • Muslim
  • Sikh
  • Hindu

The service can visit you on your ward or unit. They are there to share your concerns or celebrate your joys, and pray with you if you wish. The service can also arrange for you to attend a service or prayers in our hospital Chapel and Prayer Room.

Holy books are available on each ward upon request.

A 24-hour service is offered (for emergencies only), alongside the following programme of multi-faith services:
