Women's Hospital Chaplaincy

Our chaplains are available at the Women’s hospital to support people through times of distress, anguish, stress, illness and bereavement.

We also work very closely with the Bereavement team to provide annual baby memorial services where parents and families can remember their babies in a formal service of remembrance.

The Chaplaincy service offers care and support to people of all religious beliefs and those of no particular belief at all.

At the Women’s hospital we offer a very diverse and comprehensive service. We have a team of paid and volunteer chaplains and visitors who are trained and experienced in pastoral, spiritual, religious care and counsel.
