Relocation of Chaplaincy at Aberdeen Royal Infirmary
The Chaplaincy offices in Aberdeen Royal Infirmary have been temporarily relocated.
We are now based in the Orange Zone on Level 1, at the east end of ARI. To find us, you need to take the last corridor on the right just before you would exit the main hospital. Then walk along the corridor for about one hundred metres and on the left you will find the chaplaincy offices, just before the entrance to the new Radiotherapy building.
There is a small chapel space beside the offices, which is available for prayer, quietness and reflection. At present the chapel will only be open during office hours: 8.30am - 4. 30pm.
The existing chapel in the Pink Zone will be closed during this relocation. Sunday services will take place in the Seminar Room at Level 5 in the Green Zone.
Phone numbers will not change during this period and if you require further information please phone 01224 553316.
We hope to be back to our usual offices in the ARI Pink Zone in October.
Rev Mark Rodgers leads the team of healthcare chaplains working in NHS Grampian.
