Non-Clinical Team of the Year

Welcome to the Chaplaincy Service at the James Paget University Hospitals.

Our chaplaincy operates an open door policy and we welcome people dropping into the chaplaincy office during our open hours. 

There is usually someone in the chaplaincy from 8:30—17:00 Monday to Friday.

Our staff Chaplains represent different Christian denominations and include a visiting Muslim chaplain too. 

To assist the staff chaplains we have a wonderful team of  chaplaincy volunteers who help in various ways. 

Most mornings and some afternoons you will find our volunteers in the chapel and ready to speak with you.  Do drop in if you are passing by.


Here for all

We are here for everyone, and we are aware that some times people just need to be listened to and valued. 

Our team offers non-judgmental listening and pastoral support, as well as spiritual and religious support; to patients, visitors and hospital staff. 

We work closely together to care for people of all faiths and traditions and for people who do not belong to any religious organisation. 

Our Chaplains are happy to administer the sacraments on the wards or pray with those who request this. There is currently Catholic Mass on Tuesday and Thursday evenings and Muslim prayers on Friday at lunch time.

We also have good community links so if your require support that is outside of our team’s expertise we will do our best to connect you with the appropriate support.
