The Chaplaincy team

How to get in touch

The chaplaincy office is situated on the ground floor, between the Women's Centre and the Physio Gym.  The easiest way to find it is to turn left from the main entrance, go along the corridor and, at the end of the corridor, turn right. The chapel and chaplaincy office will be on your left about 10 yards ahead.  You can visit the chaplains there.

From outside the hospital you can telephone phone the chaplaincy team on 01325 743029.

From inside the hospital you can telephone the team on extension 43029

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


The Mary Hodgkin Memorial Chapel

The original (1950s) Mary Hodgkin Memorial Chael has now been replaced by a new, purpose built chapel in the chaplaincy suite. It is a space open to people of all faiths and none and incorporates a Wudu (washing facility for use before prayers) and quiet room in addition to the main chapel space. Users tell us it is an attracitve quiet space for praer or reflection, or just a time of peace and quiet

Worship takes place in the chapel as detailed below.  All patients, their families and friends, and staff are welcome to attend the services held there.
