"How am I going to cope with my illness?"

"How am I going to face death?"

"Where is God?"

"What is the place of spirituality in a hospital?"

"How can the liminal space opened up by illness be a creative place?"

These are the daily questions posed by working in a health service. I work part-time as a Hospital Chaplain at the West Middlesex University Hospital and Ealing Hospital. As part of that work I offer training.
