Other support services available

Chaplaincy and spiritual care

The Chaplaincy-Spiritual Care team is here for everyone of any faith, belief or philosophy of life.  We offer spiritual, religious and pastoral care to patients, staff, visitors and volunteers.

You do not have to think of yourself as religious to make use of our service. Some people may value the opportunity to talk to someone about how they are feeling and the changes they may be facing.

Our teams include Christian (Anglican and Roman Catholic), Jewish and Muslim Chaplains. We have a range of volunteers including Buddhist, Sikh and Humanist practitioners currently.  If a representative of your faith is not listed above, we will be happy to arrange a representative for you where possible.

Support Hub

The Support Hub offers support and information to people affected by long-term health conditions and their carers. The staff provide a friendly ear to talk to about whatever is on your mind and provide information on further support in the community if needed.  The support is free of charge.
