Chaplaincy - Spiritual and Pastoral Care

How we can help you

Our chaplains are available to all patients and their families, whatever their religious background or spiritual beliefs. Our chaplains offer support, comfort, prayers, and rites or rituals depending on your needs. Chaplains make regular ward visits, or you can ask the ward clerk, your nurse, social worker or the switchboard operator to contact a Chaplain for you.

Our chaplaincy service can arrange for pastoral care from most religious faiths, traditions or denominations during the day and in after hours for emergencies.

We have a Chapel near our Barker Street entrance. It is a place of prayer and reflection for all people, and is open 24 hours a day. Services and meditation times are advertised on the Chapel door. 

There is also a quiet room with a lounge near the entrance of the Royal Hospital for Women at Barker Street.
