  • Religious and spiritual support

    Multi-faith Chaplain

    Meeting the varied spiritual and religious needs of patients and staff whether they have a faith or not, Spiritual care is fundamental to the holistic care we provide. The Chaplains (individuals who provide spiritual healthcare in its broadest sense and includes those individual faith leaders from the various world faiths) regularly visit the wards on a daily basis and are here for all patients and their families/carers. For example, some may feel the need for prayer, or wish to have their child baptized. Others may just need some quiet support or reassurance.

    Whatever the need, chaplains provide an on-call service at any time of the day or night, and can be contacted through a member of the nursing staff. The Chaplains can also help those of other faiths who have differing worship needs, and can act as a link to representatives of other denominations when required.

    The Sanctuary is a Multi – Faith Space and is situated on B5 (near lifts) in the main hospital and is open 24 hours a day. There is also a multi-faith prayer room situated on Land floor of the Noah’s Ark Children’s Hospital for Wales.
