Spiritual care Tel: 0141 211 3026

The Healthcare Chaplain for Gartnavel General can be contacted on 0141 211 3026. 

 

The Chaplaincy Centre is on the Ground Floor, near the main entrance. The Chapel is open at all times and is available to patients, vistors and staff as a place of quiet reflection and prayer. Prayer mats and books of the major faiths are available alongside other resources.   The Chaplain’s office is next to the Chapel.

 

The Chaplaincy Service delivers spiritual and religious care to all people.  Spiritual care addresses the fundamental human need to have a sense of peace, security and hope particularly in the context of injury, illness or loss.  Healthcare Chaplains do this by being attentive to the patient’s story, looking for sources of strength and resilience, valuing the person and what is most important to them. Religious care can be a crucial aspect of this.  Healthcare Chaplains work with other NHS staff to ensure that these needs are met and, where appropriate, in partnership with local faith and belief groups.


We regard Spiritual Care as an intrinsic part of the holistic care provided to patients, and to those who care for them. To this end our Chaplaincy Service provides or facilitates spiritual and religious care for patients, clients, carers and staff.  

What do chaplains do? 

  • Chaplains take time to listen, non-judgementally and with compassion
  • respect and support everyone’s faith or doubts, beliefs or non-belief
  • are interested in each person’s story
  • provide rituals or ceremonies at significant times which help people to deal with change and loss
  • support and train NHS staff and others in understanding spiritual care and related matters

Local faith community leaders have an important role to play in ensuring that patients who belong to their community have their particular religious needs met.  A leaflet giving information and guidance for faith and belief community leaders on visiting hospitals is available here.

For general enquiries about Healthcare Chaplaincy in NHSGGC you may contact the Head of Chaplaincy and Spiritual Care tel: 0141 452 3220 or email us at Chaplains@ggc.scot.nhs.uk   

If you are contacting the Chaplaincy Service about a patient in one of our hospitals, please ensure, if possible, that the patient is aware of this and has agreed to it. 

An NHS Healthcare Chaplain is always on-call and ward staff can arrange for them to be paged.  A Roman Catholic Priest is also available at all times.
