Support - here to help!

We are aware that foundation training is a major transition time and pastoral support is sometimes required.

In addition, our Occupational Health Team provides a professional, confidential service with a focus on the long term health and performance of the workforce. Among the services offered by OH are

  • Immunisations

  • Access to reflexology, back massage, lifestyle screening, fitness sessions, yoga, stress awareness for busy staff, reiki and pilates. 

The Chaplaincy Department provides for pastoral, spiritual and religious needs and supports staff, patients, relatives, friends and visitors of all faiths and none.

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. 

On the second floor of the hospital is a beautiful chapel, which is open for private prayer and meditation, and services are regularly held there.  In addition to the chapel there is also a prayer room for those of different faiths. Muslim Friday prayers are regularly held here.
