A brace of new Anglican chaplains to the Mid Yorkshire NHS Trust serving Pinderfields, Dewsbury and Pontefract Hospitals have been licensed by the Rt Revd Tony Robinson, Bishop of Wakefield.
Revd Charlene Smith and the Revd Glenda Webb are pictured with Bishop Tony and other members of the Chaplaincy Team.
“It was really good to be able license Charlene and Glenda as Chaplains as it is a while since we have had an Anglican Chaplain working in the Trust,” said Bishop Tony.
The Chaplaincy Team offers a confidential listening presence to complement medical and nursing care and is a point of contact with the appropriate faith community.
Christian and Muslim worship and prayers take place in the hospital chapels and Prayer Rooms and also offer Holy Communion at the bedside by request.
The team also provides bereavement support to those who have lost a baby through miscarriage, stillbirth or neonatal death.
