Ipswich Hospital: Ipswich Hospital Catholic Chaplaincy will now be covered by Fr. Bineesh John, assisted by Deacon Clive Brooks. Please be aware that for reasons of patient confidentiality, the current practice in the NHS is NOT to inform the chaplains of any Catholics that are admitted to hospital. So, unless you or your relatives inform the chaplains of your hospital stay yourselves, you will not be visited by a priest or any other member of the chaplaincy team. Fr. Paul and Fr Bineesh can be contacted on 01473 684963
Please check with the Ward Clerk that the patient is registered as a Catholic and that the patient has ticked the box giving their permission for a priest or a member of the Chaplaincy team to visit.
Please let Fr Paul know of anyone who is ill at home or homebound, so that they can receive appropriate pastoral care.
