George Eliot Hospital Nason Ward held a beautiful special service called “Together on Sunday” to bring joy to those patients and their families that enjoy going to church on a Sunday.
Nason Ward organised this lovely multi faith service with the help from the George Eliot Hospital Chaplaincy Team to support the spiritual needs of patients within the ward.
The service was enjoyed by patients and their families, including Ruth Duke from Hinckley who had been in hospital in September but returned especially for the service. A reading from the Hospital Chaplain was provided followed by a short ward blessing from Dr Suleman who came along with his children. Everyone sang popular hymns before enjoying tea and plenty of cakes.
Hospital Chaplain, Ricarda Witcombe said: “Many patients enjoy going to church or faith groups and miss this spiritual experience when they are in Hospital.
“We hope that our future short services in Nason Ward will help to meet some of those needs for our patients and hope to expand this opportunity further.”
Ward Manager, Tracey Emms said: “This is our second ”Together on Sunday” service and we would like to thank everyone that supported or attended this special service.
“We wanted to give our patients and their families who would normally enjoy a faith service an opportunity to experience a short service while in the hospital itself.
Future monthly services have now been planned including a Christmas service on Sunday 20th December at 2.00pm to include carol singing and festive refreshments.
