Location of the Chaplaincy

The Chaplaincy department is located on the ground floor of the hospital, opposite the restaurant. It consists of the Chapel, multi-faith room and the Chaplain’s office.

The facility is open 24 hours a day.


For Holy days and special occasions, please see the chapel notice board for details. The Christian Sacraments of communion or anointing of the sick at the bedside are available on request. 


You do not have to follow a particular faith; we will respond to everyone who asks to see us and will respect wherever you are coming from. Chaplains are on duty 0800-1600, Monday to Friday. At all other times, there is a chaplain on call. 

To speak to a chaplain or to request a visit from representative of another faith community, please call into the office, contact us on 01223 639121 or email papworth.chaplaincy@nhs.net

We endeavour to provide a full 24/7 emergency service, and are contactable via the switchboard outside of office hours. There is also an answer phone for non-urgent matters.
