A serene haven for quiet reflection and comfort, the healing garden is open for patients, visitors and staff. The garden is located in the courtyard behind the cafe on the ground floor of the Hospital.


The chapel is located near the main Hospital entrance. It is open at all times for prayer to people of all faiths, or as a place of solitude and reflection.
