The Healthcare Chaplain who provides the service to the new Stobhill Hospital and all units and departments on the site can be contacted on 0141 232 7428.
In the new Stobhill Hospital is The Sanctuary. It is can be used by staff, patients and visitors for prayer or contemplation and is designed to be inclusive of all faiths and beliefs. There are two areas for reflection and prayer, one of which looks out to a small pond and shrubbery. Scriptures and resources for major faiths are available, including facilities for ablutions.
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.
