Faith Groups

Faith Groups

The NHS in Wales aims to be aware of the diverse spiritual, cultural and religious needs of the people who use its services. It would be easy to assume that people with religious belief leave their faith at the door when they enter hospital or go to see their doctor. The reality is that these needs often become stronger at such times and can be central to a patient’s experience of health care.

Similarly, for those with no particular faith, feeling vulnerable when they or a loved one are ill or faced with difficult decisions can present challenges in how to cope. They may need offers of support. All of these situations come under the banner of spiritual care and the NHS recognises that spiritual care forms an important element of the services the NHS in Wales provides to help prevent and treat illness.
