Health Matters Event: Faith in Health

Tuesday 19 November 16.00 – 17.30

Lecture Theatre 1, Education and Research Centre, (opposite Bristol Royal Infirmary), Upper Maudlin Street, Bristol, BS2 8AE

This event forms part of the Trust Health Matters Programme and will explore the theme of “Faith in Health”. It is an opportunity to help shape our health care in the future and to hear the voice of people who sometimes feel their faith needs are not recognised.

It is widely recognised that faith is a powerful force in the lives of many individuals and communities. At this event we will explore the importance of understanding faith in the context of care in our hospitals and consider how this contribution might be developed to improve health outcomes.

The event will be led by Chaplaincy Team Leader, Mark Read, and will involve representatives from faith communities across Bristol. There will be a key note address from Councillor Tom Aditya, Mayor of Bradley Stoke and Chairman of Bristol Multi-Faith Forum, followed by personal stories from faith perspectives. There will then be opportunity for you to be involved in a discussion about important aspects of care for people of faith and how we can improve our care in the future.
