Service changes and visiting during the COVID-19 pandemic

During this COVID-19 pandemic there may be changes in the way some of our services work. Contact the service directly to check how services are being delivered and follow their advice.

Some of our services now offer video consultations. You should speak to your clinician if this is something you would like them to consider. You can find out more about video consultation here.

Chaplaincy and Spiritual Care Team

We are a modern, diverse and multi-faith team, providing pastoral, spiritual and religious care to inpatients within Nottinghamshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust sites.

We are here for those of a particular faith and those of absolutely no faith at all and everyone in-between. We can provide or seek somebody of your particular faith, and we also have Spirituality and Wellbeing Practitioners for non-religious support and activities.

Anyone can refer a patient, including themselves, a family member, friend, or healthcare professional. If you are referring somebody else, we cannot discuss anything regarding their care with you, but we will check if they would like our support.

It is important to remember that we do not exist entirely for religious purposes, and you do not need to be religious to get in touch. It may be that you would simply like somebody to talk to and have alongside you in your journey of recovery. We will always do our best to offer the right support and resources, according to what you want.

We also offer the same support to our own staff who can refer themselves or be referred by a manager or other staff member.

If you would like to speak to somebody or have questions about our service please do get in touch.
