Chaplains, spiritual and religious support

COVID-19 Update

Chaplains are visiting wards regularly. If you or a relative would like a visit, please ask the staff or contact us directly (see below for contact details).

Support for relatives: If you have a relative in hospital, and you would like to speak to us for support, we can arrange a phone call or video call.

Prayer in chapel: we can light a candle in the chapel, say a prayer or name a person, and send a picture of the candle to anyone who would like it.

What we do

The Chaplains offer spiritual, religious and pastoral support to patients, relatives, carers and staff at all four of the hospitals in the Trust. We are available for everyone, of any faith or none.

A chaplain will:
  • listen and be alongside you
  • retain confidentiality
  • help you in healing and recovery
  • offer prayers and sacraments if requested
A chaplain will not:
  • preach at you, judge you or criticise you
  • push religion at you
  • visit for too long

Our team includes 6 professional chaplains (one full and five part-time) and more than 40 volunteer chaplains. We try to visit every ward during the week, but inevitably it isn’t possible to catch everyone, so please do contact us if you would like a visit. We can also contact local faith community leaders on your behalf.

All services and mindfulness sessions are currently suspended and will resume as soon as possible.

Contact and location

At Warwick Hospital, there is a chapel and multi-faith prayer room open 24 hours seven days a week.
