Spiritual and pastoral support

UH Bristol has a team of hospital chaplains to help assist in the spiritual, religious and pastoral care of patients, relatives and staff within the hospitals. They offer a point of contact for all spiritual and religious needs providing pastoral support for patients approaching the end of life and those who care for them. They are available to listen, talk or advise on the human emotions and spiritual, ethical or existential aspects often associated with dying and death. They also provide religious rites such as prayer for the dying or deceased. Chaplains can contact community representatives from a number of faith or belief traditions to request additional support when requested to do so.

Hospital chaplains are available from 9am to 5pm, Monday to Friday to visit patients or their families on the ward. A duty chaplain is available 24/7 to provide emergency care and can be contacted by staff via the hospital switchboard.
