Spiritual care and looking after the whole person

Our spiritual care service consists of a team of experienced specialist healthcare chaplains who form part of the multi-disciplinary team. Being diagnosed with a terminal illness affects not only the person concerned but also those who love and care for them, and our chaplains provide a caring, confidential listening ear to anyone wanting to talk through their experience, whether one has a specific religious faith or belief or not. Spiritual care may include support with recognition of grief and loss, advice with funeral planning where desired and communicating these wishes to others, as well as listening and support.

Religious care
The chaplains are happy to support your religious care either themselves or with consent, by contacting a faith community leader on your behalf.
Religious care may include: prayer, sacraments, providing sacred/religious literature, specific rituals, funerals, marriages and general pastoral care.
