Spiritual and Pastoral Care

The Spiritual and Pastoral Care Service at Myton is delivered in partnership with University Hospitals Coventry and Warwickshire NHS Trust.

The Chaplaincy team is made up of Chaplains and volunteers from a wide breadth of cultural and faith/no-faith backgrounds.

Members of the team are trained to be careful and compassionate listeners, and offer confidential, non-judgemental support regardless of denomination, culture or ethnicity.

The same support is offered both to patients, and to any family members or friends who might find it helpful.
