Coming into hospital can be an anxious time for all of us; placing us in an unfamiliar setting away from all we know and are familiar with. Having someone to talk to about our concerns can be helpful.
The chaplains at Mid Essex Hospital Services NHS Trust are here to provide spiritual and religious care to patients, their relatives and the staff; and are also available out of hours 24 hours a day Seven Days a week.
The Faith Centre is a quiet space for all to use for reflection, prayer, to come for help & support, or just for a few moments peace. The Faith Centre is also a venue for religious prayers and services throughout the year.
We recognise that patients, their families and our staff come from rich and diverse backgrounds and we seek to support the needs of all with bedside prayer or other ritual support and/or resources.
There are a variety of ways in which we can support you in remembering loved ones who have died in hospital including the parents of babies or children who have died.
If you have just suffered a Bereavement
you will find the following practical support helpful.
The Chaplains are here to support the whole hospital community; including its staff and volunteers. This support can be to help in spiritual care for patients or might be for your own needs.
There are some great opportunities available across the hospital and chaplaincy offers some very special ways for you to volunteer.
