A Healthcare Chaplain is available to patients, visitors and staff at Dykebar Hospital.
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.
