Our aims are:
- To ensure that anyone who says they are Jewish and is in hospital can, if they so wish, be visited by either a Jewish Chaplain or a Jewish Visitor. The patient can be a member of any synagogue or none and our chaplains and visitors come from all parts of the Jewish community.
- To assist staff responsible for caring for Jewish patients by providing information on Jewish religious and cultural practices.

Shabbat in Hospital
If either you or a member of your family is in hospital over Shabbat, it can be problematic. Jewish Visiting do not generally visit patients on Shabbat, but if you are concerned about a member of your family we will ask if a member of the local synagogue can visit or try and arrange accommodation for you in the vicinity, where possible.
