Abstract

The author describes the developments initiated by the chaplaincy team at the Lothian university Hospitals Division of NHS Lothian, both in preparation for and in response to NHS HDL 76(2002) 'Spiritual Care in NHS Scotland'. These developments have included changes in teamworking, closer relationships with faith communities, and a new sanctuary without any dominant religious symbolism.
