Illness doesn't just affect the body – and time in hospital, either as a patient or visitor, can be an unsettling experience as hopes and plans have to be thought through afresh and new ways of living accepted. Questions often arise as people wrestle with their deepest needs.
The Trust recognises that meeting spiritual needs can be an important factor in a person’s wellbeing and that this is not limited to people who have a formal religious affiliation or belief.
Chaplains are appointed by the Trust to provide spiritual and pastoral care as well as a listening ear. Support is provided in a sensitive, non-judgemental and confidential manner - helping people find strength, comfort and meaning at what can be a very difficult time in their lives.
