The Chaplaincy Department provides
for pastoral, spiritual and religious needs and supports staff,
patients, relatives, friends and visitors of all faiths and
The department consists of Church of England, Roman Catholic,
Free Church Clergy and lay volunteers in addition to a Jewish
chaplain - working together across the denominations. They do
not try to 'convert' people or to push their viewpoints - they are
simply here to help, talk, and give comfort and support.
