Health and Social Care Chaplaincy, Scottish Journal of Healthcare Chaplaincy Vol 6 (1) 2003

Spiritual Care in NHSScotland, Scottish Association of Chaplains in Healthcare

Derek Brown
Issued Date: 21 May 2013


The author welcomes ’Spiritual Care in NHSScotland’ as evidence that spiritual care provision has been acknowledged as a vital part of NHS healthcare. The establishment of spiritual care committees will enable a strategic overview of spiritual care services, and will give chaplains themselves the opportunity to influence the direction and future shape of chaplaincy. Welcome too is the emphasis upon the support, training and development of chaplains. However, concern is expressed over the issue of funding the proposed changes, in the absence of any pledge of new money from the Scottish Executive.
