Spiritual Care

Wirral Hospice St John’s offers religious and spiritual support to all our Inpatients, Wellbeing Centre patients and their families, volunteers and staff.

We respect every person’s individual beliefs irrespective of background, ethnicity or gender.

Spirituality is the essence of who you are and what gives your life meaning and purpose. For some people that’s found in a faith, but for many other people it’s found in the people and things they enjoy; family, friends, and/or in a combination of nature, sport, music and the like. Every person is a unique individual and therefore everyone’s needs are different. Our aim is to ensure that every persons spiritual needs are met, wherever possible, whether religious or non-religious to enable each person to come to place of peace with themselves and their world.

Heather Macleod: Spiritual Coordinator

Rev Heather Macleod has worked at Wirral Hospice St John’s since the mid 1990’s.

She says.

“Whilst you may think my role as Spiritual Care Coordinator / Chaplain is concerned with religious needs, it’s really much more than that.

I’m here to offer support in whatever way I can; being a listening ear or someone to chat to if you’re feeling lonely or anxious. Sometimes it can be trying to help you make sense of what’s happening to you and helping you to come to deal with the fears, anger and anxieties that you may experience at difficult times like this. Sometimes it may just be helping you to explore and express your thoughts and feelings. Please be assured that all our conversations are completely confidential.”
