Chaplaincy and spiritual care

Sometimes being away from home and finding yourself in hospital can be a rather worrying experience. If you would like someone to talk to – apart from friends and family – consider speaking to a chaplain. We are happy to spend time with you and listen to your thoughts and concerns.

We shall be guided by you as to what kind of support you would like from us. Mostly we support people individually, but we do have some regular and seasonal chapel services. Many of the patients we support claim no faith. We shall not try to change your beliefs.

We have two chaplaincy teams, one based at Musgrove Park Hospital and the other available in our community hospitals and mental health wards.
