RMH Pastoral Care

The Pastoral Care and Chaplaincy Team support people as they journey through times of illness and associated uncertainty. We assist people to draw on their own ‘spiritual’ resources, those things that provide meaning, purpose and a sense of belonging.

For some people, the ‘spiritual’ is expressed through formal religious belief, practice and community. For others, it is realised through informal beliefs and practice, often connected to meaning drawn from culture, relationships and life experiences. Pastoral Care (sometimes called spiritual care) is provided by trained spiritual care practitioners and faith chaplains.

Our services include

•Confidential spiritual support during illness, surgery, and hospitalisation

•Emotional and spiritual support for families and carers

•Religious and sacramental care including prayer, communion, anointing

•Coordinating visits by representatives from most religious traditions.

Pastoral Care workers regularly visit the wards during the week complementing the work of other staff. If you would like to see a Pastoral Care worker or a representative of your religion, please ask your nurse to contact Pastoral Care.
