Pastoral Care

Service Outline

Pastoral Care recognises that admission to hospital is often a crisis experience and offers you support and an opportunity to explore your emotional and spiritual concerns.

We believe that a supportive presence for the patient and their families in times of uncertainty and difficulty encourages their own spirituality to assist them in their crisis. Therefore, our aim is to encourage patients, their relatives and friends and staff to express their spiritual and emotional needs, while respecting the dignity, values, and beliefs of each person.

The care we offer is respectful of the unique integrity of each person and their personal, religious or philosophical beliefs.

Members of the Pastoral Care Team are available to listen to you and be with you.

Pastoral Care workers maintain a strict code of confidentiality in relation to information regarding patients and staff.
