Chapels and Places of Reflection
The Hospital Chapels are open 24 hours a day, for the use of patients, staff and visitors. They provide a place for people to reflect, pray or just be quiet. We are unable to allow the lighting of candles in the Chapels. However, there is a Pebble Pool available which we hope will act as a satisfactory alternative.
For Muslims there are washing facilities, prayer mats (currently in paper form due to Covid-19 restrictions) and a sign locating the direction of Ka’bah.
In addition to the Hospital Chapels there are gardens available for quiet reflection at each hospital.
The White Garden
At the Royal Shrewsbury Hospital the white garden has been created as a place of tranquillity and incorporates hand-painted stones which have been decorated by Shropshire schoolchildren. The white garden is located near the Hamar Centre.
