Our Chaplaincy Team is here to care for all patients, staff, friends and relatives. Coming into hospital can be difficult and we are here to support you, whether or not you have any religious faith.

The chaplains, supported by volunteers from our community, are available to listen; to talk; to pray or just sit with you.  If you would like a chaplain to visit you during your hospital stay, please ask the ward staff to contact us, or telephone us on:

  • (01482) 675966 for Hull Royal Infirmary
  • (01482) 623091 for Castle Hill Hospital
  • (01482) 461227 for Queen’s Centre for Oncology and Haematology

We provide a 24 hour emergency on call service.  A chaplain can be contacted at any time.  Please ask a member of staff to do this for you.  We can also contact a representative of your faith community for you, if you wish.
