The PCG Group comprises of dedicated volunteers who are on hand on a daily basis to visit people who have been admitted into hospital. Our volunteers offer a listening ear, comfort, consolation and even a prayer, if requested.

Our volunteers are patient, caring and understanding of the needs of the patient and the stresses it can have on family, friends and loved ones. The PCG Group wants to make the time a patient has been admitted to hospital up to their discharge as smooth and comforting as possible.


The PCG Group services include:

 

  • Regular ward visits of in-patients
  • One-to-one / group family support sessions
  • Follow-up home visits, upon request
  • Oer pastoral and spiritual support for all faith groups

If you have or know someone who has recently been admitted to hospital, you can contact the PCG Group to arrange a visit.
