Chaplaincy

A warm welcome from the Chaplaincy Team! Our aim is to be a listening ear and comforting presence for all – people of all faiths and beliefs. We are happy to talk about anything and everything.

The Chaplaincy Services at the Shrewsbury and Telford Hospital NHS Trust are there to provide spiritual and pastoral support, appropriate to the individual needs of patients, their families and our staff.

The on-site Chaplain’s working hours are between 8am to 4pm daily. Outside of these times, an on-call Chaplain can be contacted which means that someone is available 24 hours a day 7 days a week.

The Hospital Chapels are also open 24 hours a day for the use of patients, staff, visitors and volunteers.

Please explore our website further to find out more about the services we provide and how to contact us.

Chaplaincy provides spiritual care practice which recognises and responds to the needs of the human spirit when faced with trauma, ill health or sadness and can include the need for meaning, for self-worth, to express oneself, for faith support, perhaps for rites or prayer or sacrament or simply for a sensitive listener. Spiritual care begins with encouraging human contact in compassionate relationship, and moves in whatever direction need requires.  (NHS Education for Scotland 2009)
