    Patients In Hospital – IMPORTANT

    - by rootadmn

    The Hospital Chaplains have asked that we make people aware that if they or a relation are going into hospital, please inform the Hospital Chaplaincy Team at the hospital so that they can be visited and supported.

    If the patient is a Roman Catholic please also inform the Parish Priest and Roman Catholic Chaplain on duty. This is because of Patient Confidentiality the hospital will not inform the Chaplaincy Team. It is up to the family to do so
