Pastoral Care

Who we are

PCH’s Pastoral Care Services provide pastoral and spiritual care for patients (children), staff, families and carers from all religious and non-religious backgrounds.

Services we provide

We recognise Western Australia’s spiritual diversity and actively engage with people of all beliefs, faiths and traditions. You do not need to identify as religious to receive chaplaincy support.

Spiritual care services are tailored to meet the spiritual needs of each individual or group and may include:
  • spiritual, pastoral and emotional support
  • companionship
  • listening
  • prayer and blessing
  • religious representations and rituals.
Chaplains work across all clinical areas. This provides continuity in our relationship when families transition through the hospital, such as from a child’s initial presentation through to the ward and later as an outpatient.

Multi-faith Centre

PCH’s Multi-faith Centre on Level 5 provides a calm and welcoming space for time-out, prayer, meditation, quiet reflection and counselling for people of all faiths, spiritual backgrounds and those of no religion.Within the Multi-faith Centre is a book in which patients, staff and families can write prayers or messages. These prayers are remembered and honoured by the Chaplains.


Patients, staff and families can contact Pastoral Care Services directly by:
  • Visiting the Multi-faith Centre on Level 5
  • Calling us on 6456 2222
  • Asking the nurse to page a Chaplain. 
You may also be referred to Pastoral Care Services by your clinician or allied health professional. Chaplains are integrated with clinical teams at PCH, and we visit patients and families in areas of high need.
