Spiritual healthcare, and social media

Baptist chaplain creates twitter feed to provide forum for those in healthcare to discuss spiritual care

Working in healthcare and interested in the spiritual side of care?

WeChaplainsA new twitter feed created by a Baptist chaplain might of interest. The @WeChaplains account is designed to provide a forum for those working in healthcare to discuss and be resourced in spiritual care.

It was set up by the Revd Dr David Southall, an accredited Baptist minister who is Chaplaincy Team Leader at the Worcestershire Acute Hospitals NHS Trust.

He was inspired after discovering the WeNurses website which holds online chats for people working in healthcare to share tips. He encouraged the group to host a twitter chat on spiritual care in December, and due to its popularity subsequently set up the dedicated feed.

He said WeChaplains has two aims: to provide a forum for healthcare chaplains, and for getting spiritual care in the NHS a higher profile.
The account has already gathered more than 1180 followers in its short life, with followers from the health care community. They are not just chaplains either – nurses, CEOs, doctors, patients and relatives have all followed and contributed.

‘The account is for anyone who has a passion about spiritual care in the NHS,’ said David.

David, who runs a blog sharing good news stories about hospitals in Worcestershire, has organised a group of moderators to help run it.
