This room was launched yesterday at Parkview, part of Birmingham Children’s Hospital. It has been established by Chaplaincy in partnership with Parkview. This is how it is being described:
The space is open to people of all beliefs and acts as an area for you to go to take some time for yourself.
I am sad I missed the opening of it – there was cake and samosas – but a space to meet chaplains or a peaceful space to take some time for yourself is an asset to any institution. For many years we have tried to create such a place in our home and somehow the seat I use does feel different to the seat I use to watch TV! I hope it gets well used and I look forward to seeing it in the future although there probably will not be cake or samosas waiting for me.
