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 314 9561 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.
