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?
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.
