Abstract

Fred Coutts is one of the chaplains at Aberdeen Royal Hospitals. The team of 5 whole-time chaplains, together with their Roman Catholic and Episcopal colleagues provide chap-laincy services to 1500 patients, their relatives and 5500 staff in a large acute hospital, a mater-nity hospital, a children's hospital, a palliative care unit and a convalescent hospital. Fred gives us a peek into his diary for one particularly stressful week when he was on-call. (Names have been changed to preserve confidentiality)
