Chaplaincy Service

Compassionately Caring for the emotional and spiritual wellbeing of patients, visitors and staff of the Tasmanian Health Service.

We provide compassionate emotional and spiritual support to you and your family and visitors.

We are available 24 hours a day for your support.

Ward chaplains are assigned to particular wards/units and visit patients where appropriate, whilst representatives of a wide variety of faiths visit members of their tradition. Specific religious faith representatives and clergy of all faiths and denominations may be contacted through the chaplaincy service, which will arrange a visit at your request.

Chapel

The chapel is open 24 hours a day for your quiet prayers and reflections.

Morning prayer services are held weekday mornings. Weekly chapel services are held in the chapel (first floor, C Block) each Sunday at 11.00am.

Catholic Mass is held on Wednesdays, Saturdays and the first Friday of the month at 5.00pm, and on Sundays at 4:30pm.

Notifications of Catholic mass and Sunday services will be made over the public address system.

More information and details can be found by contacting Chaplaincy Services on their office number: (03) 6166 8487, or through the switchboard on (03) 6166 8308.

Supporting Children as Inpatients

Most small children miss their families, so we encourage immediate family to spend as much time as possible with their child.

You can play a positive role during your child’s stay in hospital by assisting the hospital team with various routines, and by just being with your child.

Certain restrictions may be necessary so that the nurse can effectively carry out the child’s prescribed treatment. Your cooperation is appreciated in these circumstances.

Compliments, Suggestions and Complaints

The RHH appreciates feedback on services and care provided. This includes suggestions, thanking or acknowledging good service provided by staff, or making a complaint.

This can be done by writing a letter to the RHH, completing a feedback form, which is available on all wards, or emailing south.feedback@ths.tas.gov.au

If you have concerns or a complaint, we encourage you to discuss these with staff or with a representative from the Quality and Patient Safety Service’s Consumer Liaison Unit on 1800 811 911.

All complaints are taken seriously and a full investigation will be carried out.
