To help children and their parents understand what will happen when they go to hospital staff at the Royal Hospital for Children (RHC) have worked with the charity What? Why? Children in Hospital (WWCIH) to produce a number of videos aimed at preparing children for their hospital visit.

The series of videos cover subjects such as MRI, CT, ECG, Echo, EEG and Nerve Conduction Studies. The charity has made hospital videos showing what happens during the procedure and also play videos with pretend play ideas to help families prepare at home. 

There are 11 videos in total with seven having been filmed in the RHC with NHSGGC staff. You can view them from the charity website here

Chaplaincy & Spiritual Care Tel: 0141 452 4017

The Healthcare Chaplain for the Royal Hospital for Children can be contacted on 0141 452 4017.

 

The Sanctuary is on the ground floor:  follow the signs to Atrium; Pass Clinic 5 – the

Sanctuary is straight ahead.  It is a place of peace, meditation and prayer for all people and was designed with the needs of children and families in mind – as well as being inclusive of all faiths and beliefs. 

 

A monthly Remembrance Service is held in the Sanctuary for those who have been bereaved.  For more information please phone the Chaplain.

 

The Chaplain’s office is next to the Sanctuary.

 

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? 

  • Chaplains take time to listen, non-judgementally and with compassion
  • respect and support everyone’s faith or doubts, beliefs or non-belief
  • are interested in each person’s story
  • provide rituals or ceremonies at significant times which help people to deal with change and loss
  • support and train NHS staff and others in understanding spiritual care and related matters

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.

For general enquiries about Healthcare Chaplaincy in NHSGGC you may contact the Head of Chaplaincy and Spiritual Care tel: 0141 452 3220 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.
