Chaplaincy

Chaplains of many faiths are available to speak to all patients, relatives and carers. The chaplaincy team welcomes everyone, whatever your faith or beliefs and whether or not you follow a religion. Information about your religious affiliation will be passed to the chaplaincy. If you do not wish this to happen, please inform a member of staff. If you would like to speak to a chaplain, you can contact them on tel 020 7377 7385 or ask a member of staff to phone them on your behalf. 

The chaplains have links with many faith communities and will always try to get an appropriate representative when asked to do so. The service is confidential and respectful.

The Royal London Hospital - Chapel and prayer rooms
The chapel at The Royal London Hospital is on the ground floor of the front building and is open for patients and visitors who wish to pray or seek a quiet place. Services are held regularly.

St Bartholomew's Hospital - Church and prayer room 
The church of St Bartholomew the Less is situated just inside the Henry VIII Gate entrance to the hospital and is open for patients and visitors who wish to pray or seek a quiet place. Services are held there regularly. There is also a Muslim prayer room in the basement of Gloucester House at the hospital.

The London Chest Hospital - Quiet room
There is a ‘quiet room’ in a building behind the main building (next to the Education Centre), for patients and visitors who wish to pray or quietly reflect. The room has ablution facilities. A pin number is required to enter the room. Ward staff can give you the number and direct you to the building.
