Coming to hospital can cause many different emotions in patients, relatives, carers and friends. You may want to talk to one of our chaplains or volunteer ward visitors in confidence.
The Chaplaincy team at Princess Royal University Hospital (PRUH) and Orpington Hospital offers spiritual, religious or pastoral support to people of all faiths and beliefs, religious and non-religious.
You can talk to chaplains from the Christian and Muslim faiths. We can also call community faith leaders representing the major world religions and the Humanist Association to support you. The chaplains are assisted by a group of volunteer ward visitors.
In a busy hospital you may need a space where you can reflect in peace and quiet.
Services are held at the PRUH and at Orpington Hospital. There is also Mass on the Holy Days of Obligation. Please check the chapel notice board for information about our other services, including Services of Remembrance, or contact the Chaplaincy Office.
If you cannot get to a service, we can come and visit you on a ward. Please ask a member of staff to contact us for you.

Chaplaincy Volunteers come from a variety of local faith and belief organisations. After training, they visit patients, with their consent. They work with the Chaplains, and listen and respond sensitively to patients’ needs. This may mean supporting someone from a very different background.
