The Chaplaincy Team

The Trust currently employs a number of full and part time chaplains:

  • Revd Martin Manley, Co-ordinating Chaplain
  • Revd Angela Sumner, part time, Church of England
  • Revd Derek Hill, part time, Free Church
  • Revd Father Colin Groombridge, part time, Roman Catholic

The Chaplains are supported by over 50 volunteers, including Honorary Chaplains who are drawn from a broad spectrum of religious traditions.

In addition to the care offered by our own team, we maintain a list of religious leaders and other contacts from a very wide range of faith communities. One of our responsibilities is to ensure that patients, visitors and staff receive spiritual care that is appropriate for them, and we will do our best to contact the right person to visit, support or advise you.
