What support is there for my spiritual and cultural needs?

If you would like to discuss any spiritual needs or see someone from your own faith, please ask to speak to the healthcare chaplain. They can speak with you or find someone of your own faith for you to talk to. You don’t have to be religious or to belong to any particular faith to talk to the chaplain;


Ms Anne MacDonald DCS, Leverndale Hospital, 510 Crookston Road, Glasgow G53 7TU. Telephone: 0141 211 6695


If you have any particular needs concerning your faith or beliefs, please make these known to a member of staff.


Our service aims to provide care that meets your physical, psychological, spiritual, cultural and social needs. Here are some of the ways in which the hospital might meet your individual needs:

• Providing an interpreting service for patients whose first language is not English

• Providing a sign language interpreter for patients who are Deaf, Partially Sighted or Blind

• Offering food which meets your religious and cultural requirements

• Help in arranging visits from your church or faith community


At any time during your stay in hospital you may ask for any of these services by speaking to the nursing staff.
