Delivering care through collaboration

Spiritual Care and physical wellbeing Information

 Spiritual Care

It is recognised that working in a health care setting is stressful and may lead people to question their personal beliefs and philosophy including their understanding of life, death, illness, suffering and ethical issues.

The Spiritual Care and Wellbeing department offers personal and professional support to staff, holistic person centred spiritual care. 

As part of this service, you will have access to Chaplains, who can offer an informed, confidential resource to enable individuals and groups to reflect on their beliefs, philosophy and practice.

We believe this is an important part of developing staff resilience, as part of a comprehensive, proactive approach, to providing staff support.

What we offer:

  • Individual Support that includes, compassionate listening and pastoral supervision.
  • Group support aimed at supporting staff through Critical Incidents, Pastoral Supervision, Values Based Reflective Practice.
  • Rituals and ceremonies (such as memorial services).
  • Spiritual Care Centre a physical space that is open 24/7, a quiet zone to think, pray or meditate.
  • Spiritual Care Network if you want to get involved.
  • Training in a variety of areas including resilience and spiritual care.
