News and opinion

17 March 2015: Non-religious hospital chaplains - The Chaplaincy team at Leicester’s Hospitals have recently secured funding through the Trust’s charity to enhance the support it provides to patients who are not religious. The new post will be introduced for a trial period and will offer spiritual care for all patients with a particular focus on supporting people with no religious belief. Whether or not this will continue will depend on the response to this initiative. All are encouraged to record their views here.
