More Information
Dumbarton Joint Hospital is home to the Cairnmhor Resource Centre, the base for the community mental health team for older people in the Dumbarton, Alexandria and Helensburgh area, including those with dementia.

It accommodates a range of staff, including medical, nursing, occupational therapists, physiotherapists and support workers. Other local agencies including Alzheimer Scotland and local authority services work along side staff at the centre.

Cairnmhor offers a multi-disciplinary memory clinic and out-patient clinics and will also involve service users and carers in the delivery of services by setting up a range of groups and activities.

A duty service is being provided for people who require same day assessments, where people will be seen either in their own homes or in a clinic.

It is supported by the Crisis Team and Out of Hours Service, enabling 24 hour access to services seven days a week.

In addition the centre also houses community addiction services.

Spiritual Care Tel: 0141 314 7365

A Healthcare Chaplain is available to patients, visitors and staff at Dumbarton Joint Hospital and can be contacted on 0141 314 7365.

The Chaplaincy Service delivers spiritual and religious care to all people.  Spiritual care addresses the fundamental human need to have a sense of peace, security and hope particularly in the context of injury, illness or loss.  Healthcare Chaplains do this by being attentive to the patient’s story, looking for sources of strength and resilience, valuing the person and what is most important to them. Religious care can be a crucial aspect of this.  Healthcare Chaplains work with other NHS staff to ensure that these needs are met and, where appropriate, in partnership with local faith and belief groups.


We regard Spiritual Care as an intrinsic part of the holistic care provided to patients, and to those who care for them. To this end our Chaplaincy Service provides or facilitates spiritual and religious care for patients, clients, carers and staff.  

What do chaplains do? 

  • Chaplains take time to listen, non-judgementally and with compassion
  • respect and support everyone’s faith or doubts, beliefs or non-belief
  • are interested in each person’s story
  • provide rituals or ceremonies at significant times which help people to deal with change and loss
  • support and train NHS staff and others in understanding spiritual care and related matters

Local faith community leaders have an important role to play in ensuring that patients who belong to their community have their particular religious needs met.  A leaflet giving information and guidance for faith and belief community leaders on visiting hospitals is available here.

For general enquiries about Healthcare Chaplaincy in NHSGGC you may contact the Head of Chaplaincy and Spiritual Care tel: 0141 452 3220 or email us at [email protected]   

If you are contacting the Chaplaincy Service about a patient in one of our hospitals, please ensure, if possible, that the patient is aware of this and has agreed to it. 

An NHS Healthcare Chaplain is always on-call and ward staff can arrange for them to be paged.  A Roman Catholic Priest is also available at all times.
