GOING INTO HOSPITAL?
If you, or a family member, are going into hospital, please let your priest, Fr George, know first in case you/they require ‘Anointing of the Sick’ before being admitted.
If you are going into Lymington hospital, or a family member in hospital requests a priest, please contact Fr George.
If you are going into Southampton General or Princess Anne
Father Joe McNerney is the new R.C. Hospital Chaplain.
Father Joe comes from Portsmouth where he was Hospital Chaplain at Queen Alexander hospital
and Parish Priest in the area.
In his role at Southampton General Hospital he is part of the Chaplaincy Team with
particular responsibility for Catholic Patients.
The Catholic Chaplain is no longer automatically told there are Catholics on the ward, so
you must request a visit.

For non-urgent requests, ring 023 8120 8517.
If no one is available to take your call, please leave a message on the answerphone stating your name, the ward you are on and that you are a Catholic. They will try to respond to your request within
24 hours unless otherwise negotiated with you.
Urgent requests are usually only referred
by staff, and these are made via the switchboard. They will need to ask the operator to page the Catholic duty chaplain.
