RUH Redevelopment Plan

New Multi-faith Centre

Work begins

Building work is well-advanced on the space that'll soon house our new Multi-faith Centre. It will offer spiritual and pastoral care to people of all faiths or none.

The Project

The Multi-faith Centre is at the crossroads of zones C and D on the ground floor, near the Princess Anne Wing. It is being built in a currently open area and will include a landscaped courtyard garden.

Departmental moves mean the current Chaplaincy in C26 can now relocate to a new home. It has been sensitively designed to offer a special place to sit and think or pray.

It will be accessible and open 24 hours a day, and will include ablution and prayer spaces as well as a quiet and private space for confidential and sensitive conversations.

The Design

It has been designed in conjunction with our Chaplaincy team to create an environment where they can offer pastoral and spiritual care to people of all faiths or none, respecting each person's integrity, beliefs and needs. The chaplaincy team will still visit the wards to offer support, comfort and, when appropriate, prayer to patients, their families and staff.

Books of remembrance for both adults and babies will remain within the centre, set aside in a designated area, along with a book for people to write their own prayers and thoughts.


Open Days

We are holding a number of Open Days to show the Multi-faith Centre designs and to discuss how it can be best used.


Lead Chaplain

The Reverend Narinder Tegally is our Lead Chaplain, joining the Trust from her role as a Parish Priest in Buckinghamshire.

She is no stranger to Hospital Chaplaincy – she was previously Chaplain at the Royal Free Hospital and Senior Chaplain for Guys and St Thomas' Hospital and the Évelina Children's Hospital in London.
