People who are seriously ill should normally be served spiritually by their local Parish Priest before going into hospital, where on admittance they should request that the Hospital Chaplaincy be informed. One of the team of chaplains will visit patients who have asked for them to be informed and arrange for a Priest to administer the Sacraments.
In case of emergency the Chaplain's telephone number is 0131 242 1995, and the Chaplaincy Team Administrator's number is 0131 242 1990
