Outside of normal working hours we provide a 24/7 on-call service.  If you ask the nursing staff they can always contact us. 

Working alongside the Chaplains are Chaplaincy Volunteers who visit the wards during the week and help with bringing people to the Chapel for the Sunday service.

We also have a Multi-Faith group, comprised of local people from different faiths (including Bahá’í, Buddhist, Hindu, Jewish, Muslim) who are able to visit in the hospital and minister as requested.

The Chapel of Peace, near to the Main Reception, is always open and provides a quiet retreat in the midst of a busy hospital.  It is a place for prayer and quiet reflection for people of all faiths and beliefs. 

A Multi-Faith Prayer Room (with washing facilities alongside), is also available in the main hospital.

Spiritual Care

Whatever the reason for your visit to Cransley Hospice, you may find that you have questions and uncertainties that you would like to explore, thoughts and feelings that are hard to discuss with the people who are closest to you.

Sometimes it’s easier to talk to someone who is not directly involved in your situation – and this is where the Chaplaincy Service may be able to help. Members of the team are trained to be careful and compassionate listeners, and offer confidential, non-judgemental support regardless of denomination, culture or ethnicity. The same support is offered both to patients and to any family members.

On an inspection visit in January 2017 the Care Quality Commission rated the Chaplaincy Service as outstanding. The service is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week and can accommodate any faith or religion. The service also provides bereavement support to relatives or carers even after a period had passed since their relative had died.
