Spiritual, cultural and emotional wellbeing

Pastoral Care Services

As part of our commitment to holistic care and spiritual well-being, chaplains regularly visit each ward and are available to support patients and their families. Priests and lay people are also available to visit members of their denominations. Please ask one of the nursing staff to arrange a visit when needed. There is a chaplain on call at all times for emergency situations. Holy Communion is available on request and Baptisms are available in emergency situations. If you have any enquiries or comments regarding Pastoral Care, please contact the Pastoral Care Manager or ask the Clinical Nurse Manager in your ward.

Chapel

The Wesley Chapel is located on Level 2 in the main foyer of the hospital. It is available at all times for reflection and prayer. The Chapel serves the Wesley Hospital community and is a quiet and sacred space. A short devotional service is held each weekday and on Sunday in the Wesley Chapel at 10am. The service is broadcast on the Pastoral Care channel on the television in your room. Most Sunday mornings Holy Communion is celebrated in the Uniting Church tradition. On Wednesday morning a Catholic Mass is held. If you would like to attend these services, please speak with one of the nursing staff.
