New trust chaplain
by Stephanie O'Connor

Southport and Ormskirk Hospital NHS Trust have welcomed a new chaplain.

Rev Peter Tarleton has been appointed the Trust Chaplain. He is a Church of England priest, and joins the Trust from Royal Preston Hospital.

As well as the day-to-day duties of a Chaplain, Peter will work alongside Queenscourt Hospice and community staff to ensure patients receive appropriate spiritual care within end of life care. He will work with the Christian clergy and leaders of other faiths to provide religious support and care for patients nearing the end of their lives, as well as their family and friends.

Peter commented: “I am excited to have joined the Trust. I look forward to working with teams across the Trust, as well as in the community, to develop End of Life care.

”As part of my role, I will be working with others to recruit and train volunteers to help with the care of patients, as well as supporting staff to ensure patients receive safe, clean and friendly care every time.“

Peter has been an Anglican priest for 38 years. He has previously worked as a Chaplain within the Prison Service for 20 years, a role which has taken him from Hindley Youth Custody Centre in Wigan, to HMP Lindholme near Doncaster and HMP Leeds in Armley.

Originally from Co Limerick in Ireland, Peter is a father and a grandfather. In his spare time Peter enjoys listening to jazz and folk music. Family holidays are often in Ireland, but also in France, where Peter enjoys walking in the Pyrenees.
