'We're here for you - whoever you are and whatever you believe’
Once the Chaplaincy Department has made contact with patients, it is normal practice for their names to be shared across the three main hospital sites so that continuity of care can be offered as appropriate. Please inform one of the Chaplaincy staff if you would prefer us not to share your information.
We offer pastoral, spiritual and religious care to everyone at Hinchingbrooke Hospital, supported by multi-faith leaders from our local community and a team of lay and ordained volunteers.
We visit patients and their families to listen, care, offer support and when appropriate, offer prayer, Holy Communion and other religious services at their bedside. Our working hours are from 8am to 4pm and we have an on call service for emergency situations outside of these times.
The chapel is on the main corridor on the ground floor - just look out for the signs. It is open day and night and all are welcome there for times of quiet reflection or prayer. The Chapel Garden is also always open and a place of beauty and peace.
We hold a variety of services each week and all are welcome:
- Wednesday, 4.30pm - Roman Catholic Mass
- Fridays, 1pm - Muslim Juma Prayers
On the first Wednesday on each month from 11am, we hold a short service of remembrance for those who have sadly experienced early baby loss.
We have special services throughout the year: baptisms, renewal of wedding vows, the Trust Carol Service in December and memorial services.
We take part in all aspects of our hospital's life
We are members of various committees and groups, sharing in discussions about ethical issues, dignity and respect, holistic care and on all spiritual, pastoral and religious matters, as well as learning and development and education.
Supporting staff and volunteers
Having someone to share your personal and/or work-related concerns with, who offers a non-judgemental and confidential ear, can often be really helpful. We offer support for everyone.

Our Chaplaincy team supports patients, visitors and staff throughout the Trust and is available for everyone, irrespective of faith, belief, culture or nationality.
We provide spiritual and pastoral care for patients, visitors, volunteers, staff and students which is compassionate, sensitive and appropriate to their spiritual, religious, cultural and emotional needs. This is so every person can begin to find strength, comfort, hope and meaning within their experience of life, death, illness, injury or circumstances, whatever their beliefs may be.
We believe that:
- spiritual well-being and pastoral care are essential to promoting health and healing
- respect and regard for spiritual, religious and cultural needs should be observed for every person
- privacy, dignity and confidentiality should be shown to all at all times
We operate a 24 hour Trust wide on-call service with a duty chaplain always available for urgent needs or referrals. We welcome regular referrals from patients, staff, families, carers and clergy.
