Caring for the Spirit
The Multi-faith Chaplaincy Team provides spiritual, pastoral and religious care to patients, relatives and carers, as well as staff and visitors.
The team has contacts with local faith leaders of all the major world faiths and is very happy to refer to an appropriate person when a request is made.
The Multi-faith Chaplaincy Team is here to support people of all faiths or none. You do not have to have an active religious faith to be able to access this service.

a confidential listening resource
pastoral and spiritual care
prayer and meditation
religious services at the bedside (e.g. bedside communion, emergency baptism)
the laying on of hands and anointing
a chapel, quiet room and multi-faith prayer room
local contacts for all the major world faiths
24/7 emergency on-call cover.
