Admission to Hospital

Every hospital has a system to contact a Priest in emergencies; a family member simply asks a member of staff to contact the Priest on Call and he will visit. Other non-emergency visits can be arranged via the Hospital Chaplain if required. Due to Data Protection, the Chaplain won’t know you are in the hospital unless you inform him
