Pastoral Care: Working with the hospital chaplain the hospital also has a large number of visiting Pastoral Care Workers and Ministers of Religion of various denominations and faith traditions who visit the hospital and offer emotional and spiritual support to patients and their families. Patients are given the opportunity to accept or decline a visit, if you require a visit from a member of your faith or the hospital chaplain (available 24/7) please ask one of our nursing staff members to arrange this for you.
