Urgent requests for a chaplain should be made through the hospital switchboard who will page the on-call chaplain.


The Hospital Prayer Room.

BAH Chapel/Prayer Room

There is an attractive room set aside for private prayer and personal reflection. This is on the main corridor of the ground floor.

The prayer room is open at all times. It is designed to be used by people of all faith traditions. 

The chaplains hope that everyone will feel at home there.


The Ministry and Sacraments of the Church.

Mass is celebrated monthly in the chapel by our honorary Roman Catholic chaplain. Dates and times are advertised locally and the service is open to all.

Chaplains are always pleased to meet patients on the ward and to administer the sacraments of the church as required. 





'The treatment I have received from all the staff has been excellent and could you extend my thanks to them all. A very thankful and relieved patient'.
