Spiritual care

Our Chaplain can offer support if you have concerns and thoughts about the bigger, deeper questions of life – but will equally respect your wishes should you prefer not to discuss such matters.

He will listen to your concerns and offer compassion, aiding in your search for inner peace and strength.

To help meet your specific spiritual needs, our Chaplain can potentially contact religious leaders from many different faith communities. As such, if you wish to see a representative from your own faith he can try his best to arrange this for you. In addition, our Chaplain can source sacred scriptures, artefacts and devotional literature from a range of beliefs.

We have a quiet room at our hospice that our patients and their families can use for reflection, meditation or prayer.

Charlie Radburn, West Midlands hospice chaplainMeet our Chaplain, Charlie Radburn

I am the full time chaplain at the Marie Curie Hospice, West Midlands, responsible for the spiritual care of patients, their families, staff and volunteers. It is a unique role, one in which I am available for everyone on site, and beyond.

I enjoy working with a great multi-disciplinary team that recognises and values spiritual care.

It is well understood that towards the end of life many people ask important questions and try to find some kind of meaning in what is happening to them. It is part of the role of the chaplain and chaplain volunteers to sit alongside and allow such things to surface. There is no attempt to lead, but only to listen, and to journey together.

Meet other members of the hospice team.
