The Chaplaincy Department aims to help children, families and staff to experience the compassion, love and healing presence of God. We believe that each human being is created in the image and likeness of God, is loved unconditionally, and has the basic right to respect and dignity, while in our care.
Chaplains are professionals who work as part of the hospital interdisciplinary team, offering pastoral, emotional and spiritual support. We offer support to families of all faiths and of no particular faith background. We respect the dignity of all people, irrespective of race, creed, ethnicity, or belief system.
