Our Chaplaincy team are here to help you whether you are a patient, visitor, staff or volunteer. We are employed by the Trust to offer support to everyone irrespective of faith or belief.

We provide confidential comfort and support in difficult times such as living with illness, facing bereavement or life pressures.

We are available to people of all faiths or none. We offer bedside communion, prayers and anointing on request and can help put you in touch with faith communities.

Our three general hospitals and The Northumbria hospital have chapels for quiet reflection and prayer. A member of the team is available 24 hours a day in these hospitals, and as soon as they are able to be with you at the community hospitals.

If you would like a chaplain please speak to a member of ward staff.
