Meet the Chaplaincy Team 

  • Rev. Chris Hayes (Church of England) Chaplain, full time

The Chapel

The Chapel, Chaplains’ Office and Quiet Room are situated on the ground floor of the hospital.  Opening hours for the chapel are between 7.30am and 6pm. 

The Chapel is locked overnight for security reasons.  However, access to the Chapel is possible outside opening hours via the porters who can be contacted through the main switchboard (01723) 368111.

Patients are welcome to receive Holy Communion on the ward on Sunday, or at other times.


We always welcome referrals of anyone who would appreciate support during their time in hospital.  To refer someone to the Chaplaincy department, telephone the main office or if your call is urgent, contact the main switchboard on (01723) 368111, they will contact the appropriate person.

If your referral relates to a patient at Scarborough or Bridlington Hospital please ensure that you state 'Scarborough Hospital.'
