The Trust employs a team of full & part time Trust Chaplains; currently drawn from different Christian denominations to provide spiritual and religious care to patients, relatives and staff throughout our hospitals- (Broomfield, Braintree Community Hospital & St Peters Maldon).
This experienced team is supported by an administrator and is based in the Faith Centre (A209).
We also have a group of Associate Chaplains from the community who support this team and also other faith leaders who provide care to those needing support from other world religions.
Volunteer Ward Chaplains
Most wards in the hospital are assisted in their spiritual care of patients by volunteer ward chaplains.
These volunteers drawn from a variety of world faith and belief backgrounds provide a listening ear for patients and refer ongoing needs to the Trust Chaplains.
On Sundays we have a team of volunteer Eucharistic Ministers from Roman Catholic, Church of England and other Christian denominations, who bring communion to the bedside for those who request it.
Opportunities for you to be involved in chaplaincy volunteering can be found here.
