The Chaplaincy/Pastoral Care Department is committed to providing pastoral and sacramental care to patients, families, and staff. We do this through supporting and journeying with patients and their families during times of crisis such as illness, death and bereavement. The Chaplains are available to people of all faiths and none.
How can we help?
A listening ear
A non judgemental presence
A ministry of hope and healing
A word of prayer
Arrangements for sacraments

A support to families and friends

The Multi- denominational Chaplaincy/Pastoral Care Department is served on a full time basis by one lay Chaplain, three Roman Catholic Priest Chaplains and two Church of Ireland Chaplains.
All chaplains are accredited healthcare chaplains and work as part of the multidisciplinary team who care for you or your loved one.
