Policies

The NHS has produced some helpful policy documents relating to the spiritual care of patients.

These documents set out principles by which we may deliver spiritual care and highlight the importance of spiritual care being available to patients within the NHS.

The following policy documents now span 20 years and specifically include the General Practice setting.
