How to contact a Chaplain

If you would like to see a Chaplain, simply inform a member of your health care team and they will arrange it for you. Our chaplaincy team includes a dedicated chaplain and a team of pastoral care volunteers including Roman Catholic, Church of England, Free Church, Christian, Hindu, Jewish Orthodox, Muslim, Sikh and Non-religious chaplains. If there is not an appropriate person within the team you can ask us to contact someone of your own religion or belief. All members of the chaplaincy are happy to work with those of different religions and beliefs.

Religion Booklet

The Royal Orthopaedic Hospital is in Birmingham, a multi-cultural and diverse city with a population exceeding one million. People here have a range of different beliefs and follow many different religions. This booklet has been designed to help you understand a little bit more about some of the world’s most common religions and share some of the views and stories of people who work here. We want our hospital culture to be as inclusive as possible and that often begins with understanding more about what people believe.
