Lessons for Chaplaincy from a Management Secondment
Keywords:spiritual care, chaplaincy, rehabilitation, reablement, self-management, falls prevention, vocational rehabilitation, integrated care
Following a secondment in NHS management, the author reflects on the absence of spiritual care from many of the policies that shape the delivery of healthcare in NHS Scotland. He calls for a greater integration of existing spiritual care and chaplaincy policy with NHS Scotland’s policies. He looks at ways in which chaplaincy can contribute to the process of greater integration by becoming more involved in current changes in healthcare delivery. He applies some of the lessons learned in the management secondment to his current practice as a Mental Health and Learning Disability Chaplain.
