The Spiritual Care team provide spiritual support for hospice patients, which is religious care and emotional support, their families and carers, volunteers and staff. We are there to listen, support and assist where we can.
Illness, suffering and bereavement affect most people physically and emotionally, and they may also present a spiritual challenge.
Our Spiritual Care team is led by John Hall, Spiritual Care and Bereavement Support Lead. The team visit the inpatient unit and day therapy regularly, but patients and visitors can also contact the team by asking a nurse or volunteer to arrange a visit, which can also be at home.

The Spiritual Care team will make contact with a representative from any faith or belief community when requested. This includes asking a patient's minister, priest, iman or spiritual leader to visit the hospice to see them.
