Spiritual care is offered to all patients. We understand the importance it plays in helping us navigate life, deal with stress and difficult events and also contributes to the process of healing.
Within the health board we have the health board chaplaincy and spiritual care support service. They are a team of chaplains who work health board wide who operate on a referral system who support all patients, children, family members and also staff members. Once a referral has been made then a visit from the chaplaincy team can be arranged.
We have a team of Ecumenical Christian chaplains, a Muslim chaplain and a Catholic chaplain. All of the Ecumenical Christian chaplains and our Muslim chaplain are all able and willing to support the spiritual care needs of the non-religious demographic – they are here to support anybody who requires any religious or spiritual care needs. The chaplains can also assist if there are any religious or spiritual requirements for end of life care. The chaplains are always around just for a chat or to listen, to patients or staff.
If a patient or staff member has an alternative faith and we do not have a chaplain of staff representative of that faith, we have links to the local community and we will find somebody who is more suited to your needs.
In Morriston and Singleton hospital, we have a multi-faith centre. It is open 24/7 so you can visit any time day or night. We also have a smaller, multi-faith room located in Neath Port Talbot hospital and Cefn Coed hospital that is also open 24/7.
