What's the talk about?

Employed by NHS Grampian with lead responsibility for mental health, based in Royal Cornhill Hospital, Aberdeen, duties include supporting patients and carers, helping front line staff, and continuing research.

I will be talking about my role within NHS Grampian. As part of the multi-disciplinary team chaplains complement the work done by medical practitioners and provide opportunities to explore beliefs, values and what motivates, individuals and society. With a wide variety of backgrounds patients present with different conditions and behaviours, although these are important, I am interested in helping them make sense of what is happening to them. It’s a person-centred, existential, exploration that I would define as spiritual care. For some it may include religious rites and ritual but for the majority it’s the all too human search for meaning.
