Chaplaincy

The Chaplaincy Team at UHMBT is here to help meet the spiritual and religious needs of patients, their relatives and staff at the Trust.  This can be done through direct contact with members of the Chaplaincy Team or by being put in contact with someone, outside of the hospital, who can help meet a spiritual or religious need. This may be a local church leader, or an imam or other faith group leader, or a  philosophical belief group.

The Trust operates on 3 main sites and there is a lead chaplain for each site.  These are:

Westmorland General Hospital
Rev Jayne Tyrer – Site Lead Chaplain and Trust Chaplaincy Team Lead

Furness General Hospital
Rev Debbie Wilde - Site Lead Chaplain

Royal Lancaster Infirmary
Rev Ian Dewar - Site Lead Chaplain

All 3 site leads are supported by a team of volunteers who engage in ward visiting and/or acts of worship along with other projects as opportunity arises.  All volunteers are interviewed by the respective site chaplain and receive training in order to be able to fulfil their role.
