Our acclaimed Chaplaincy team is made up of qualified representatives from all the faith communities that live in and around the Bradford area.
We care for ALL – for patients, their families, loved-ones and for staff.
We are trained and experienced listeners and would be pleased to visit any patient of any faith, as well as those who find faith difficult and have no faith.
We offer spiritual and pastoral care 365 days a year. Our chaplains are present on site seven days a week between 8am and 5pm, and are on call and able to visit in urgent situations outside those times.
- We won’t judge, we won’t pry, we won’t impose
- We will listen, we will care
- We are here to be there for you
- Christian chapel
- Muslim prayer room for staff with wudhu facilities
- Quiet rooms (for staff only at present)
These facilities are open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year for private prayer and quiet.
Currently, because of coronavirus, the following limitations are place:
- Muslim prayer facilities and separate quiet rooms are available for staff only
- No formal services or congregational gatherings are possible in any of these facilities
All chaplains present on site can visit ANY patient to provide general pastoral care. We can facilitate specific spiritual and religious support. We can support family members and loved ones if they are struggling in any way whilst the one they care about is in hospital.
If you need help with a spiritual need or a religious question we can advise and discuss. Please contact us.
If you would like to see a Chaplain during your stay, please ask the ward staff to contact the appropriate Chaplain for you or phone us on 01274 365819.
No – Chaplaincy essentially provides pastoral care. We’re here to help to support people as they think and talk about anything that is affecting them by being in hospital. Some people we chat with have a faith, many don’t, but all have spiritual needs.
Members of the Chaplaincy team visit wards and departments regularly but will also visit particular patients and relatives on request.
Patients’ families and staff also talk to our chaplains about a range of subjects, not only religious ones. Being in hospital can be boring or difficult or emotional or frustrating. Talking to a Chaplain helps people to offload and process these things.
We care for ALL: patients, family, carers and staff.
We won’t intrude. We will listen. We are here to be there for you.
