The Ecumenical Ward Chaplaincy Service provides care for the emotional and spiritual needs of patients, their families and friends, and staff. Chaplains provide a willing ear and their approach is one offered in friendship and with a non-judgemental attitude.
Chaplains are volunteers trained as pastoral care providers who offer their services free of charge. Chaplains are available and in the hospital from Monday to Friday.
Radio Lollipop is an international children’s charity and provides care, comfort, play and entertainment to sick children and their families in hospital. It operates an in-house radio station and involves the children in fun play activities throughout the wards.
