The following article arises out of an interview with Fred Coutts from the chaplaincy department of the Grampian University Hospitals, which includes Aberdeen Royal Infirmary, Aberdeen Maternity Hospital and the Royal Aberdeen Children’s Hospital. Fred describes a recent period of crisis in the life of the hospital, and how during this period, the chaplaincy department was able to provide a service to both hospital and community. By the nature of their training and day to day work, the chaplains were perhaps uniquely well able to provide this service.
