Labour Ward 0141 211 5340/5216

Within labour suite we encourage birthing partners to be present acknowledging their important role in supporting women and the impact on their birth experience. 

Birthing partners are encouraged to update friends and family on women’s progress thus limiting the number of direct calls to labour suite and ensuring that women remain informed and at the centre of all discussions surrounding communication of their babies birth.

Visiting within high dependency will be determined by the women’s condition.  Partners will be supported to visit and any additional visitors will be guided by the women’s condition and activity within the area.

Spiritual Care - Chapel and Quiet Room Tel: 0141 211 4661

The Healthcare Chaplains for the Princess Royal Maternity Hospital can be contacted on 0141 211 4661.

 

There is a small Chapel on the 4th floor of the Maternity Hospital. It is open 24 hours a day and offers a peaceful space for patients, visitors and staff for the purposes of reflection, meditation and prayer.  There is also a Quiet Room adjacent to the chapel.

 

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.


For general enquiries about Healthcare Chaplaincy in NHSGGC you may contact the Head of Chaplaincy and Spiritual Care tel: 0141 211 3026 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.
