Chaplaincy- spiritual care at the Royal Free

Someone to talk to, someone to listen, someone to be there

The Chaplaincy-Spiritual Care team is here for everyone. We are a multi-faith, multi denominational team who 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.

Much of our work is that of listening to patients, allowing them to 'tell it like it is'. The task of a chaplain is to 'be with and to be for' the patient. We neither moralise nor seek to convert. We place a high value upon a person's individual experience and work mostly on a 'one-to-one' basis, in complete confidentiality and trust.

Our team includes

Christian (Anglican and Roman Catholic), Jewish and Muslim Chaplains

If a representative of your faith is not listed above, or if you would like to speak to a humanist, we will be happy to arrange a representative for you where possible.

The Chapel, Muslim Prayer Room and Shabbat Room are located on the Lower Ground Floor of the Royal Free Hospital. The Chapel is a place of peace in a busy hospital. Everyone is welcome!
