Support Service


Hospital Chaplains are here for everyone. You do not have to be in any way ‘religious’ to ask to see one of our Chaplains.

Most of us, at one time or another have to face searching questions and make difficult decisions, and at times like these it’s good to know that there is someone to listen, to support, to encourage, or to question. We want to be there for you so please do not hesitate to contact us if you think we can be of help. 

A Chaplain is always available 24 hours a day/365 days a year. 

Read more about this service in our Chaplaincy/Spiritual Care patient information leaflet.

Baby Cemetery

There is a baby cemetery at the Kent and Canterbury Hospital, where babies were laid to rest up until 2003. The cemetery is maintained by the Trust's estates team and overseen by the chaplains. A new bench for parents was donated by the East Kent Baby Memorial Gardens charity in 2021 and we are very grateful for their support.

If you need information about the baby cemetery, please contact our PALS team
