Promoting best practice in healthcare chaplaincy
Chaplaincy Team

In a modern NHS Foundation Trust, chaplains work alongside patients, staff and relatives within the whole hospital community and for a variety of reasons.

Chaplains are normally on duty Monday to Friday 0800 to 1600 hrs. At all other times, there is a Chaplain on call.

We offer pastoral care and support to all members of staff and their families. This is a unique service offered to staff from all disciplines. 


Services and prayers in the chapel

The hospital chapel is in the main concourse area. It is a multi-faith space open for anyone to use day or night, and is used regularly by patients, relatives/carers and staff as a place of quiet, prayer and reflection.

For patients and their relatives

Coming into hospital can be an anxious time. Chaplains are available to meet with, to be with, to listen or to talk things through with patients and their families. 


A number of courses created primarily for Trust staff, are also open to other interested parties and are are run by members of the Addenbrooke's Hospital Bereavement Care Group on a regular basis.

Remembrance books in the chapel

There are three books of remembrance kept in the chapel: one is for members of staff who have died, one is for babies and one for children who have died whilst being cared for in the hospital.
