This guidance replaces HSG (92)2 and is intended for use by trust managers and those involved in chaplaincy- spiritual care provision. It has been compiled in conjunction with multi-faith groups and reflects feedback from a "Listening Exercise" carried out in summer 2003: this allowed both the public and NHS based sources to shape the final version.
