Inpatient Stay - Religion and Spirituality

You are here: Home \ Patients & Visitors \ Inpatient Stay \ Religion and Spirituality

Illness and injury can have an impact on your whole life, not just your body. And it can be hard to talk about your anxieties or fears with the people you are closest to. We are keen to help by supporting the full range and variety of spiritual and religious needs of our patients, their carers and staff.


Our chaplaincy team consists of chaplains from the main Christian denominations, supported by a team of trained volunteers. We also welcome representatives and leaders of other faiths into the hospital to support patients, carers and staff. If you would like a hospital chaplain to visit, please inform your nurse.


The hospital chapel is situated on level 2 at Wonford Hospital near the Oasis Restaurant. It is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Patients, visitors and staff are welcome to use it as a place for reflection and prayer.


For details of our chaplaincy service please call (01392) 402024 or call the hospital switchboard on (01392) 411611 and ask them to contact the chaplaincy. You can also leave a message at the chaplaincy office next to the hospital chapel. You can ask your own pastor, minister, priest or other religious or spiritual leader to contact us on your behalf.


Patients unable to attend services can listen to them from their bedside on hospital radio.
