Our local hospital is the Queen Elizabeth in Gateshead. If you or a relative are to be admitted and wish to receive Holy Communion or to be visited, please contact our chaplain, the deacon Rev. Peter Jones, on (0191) 4452072, or leave a message for the Catholic Chaplain. If you need a priest to celebrate the Sacrament of The Sick, please ask a member of the hospital staff to ‘bleep’ the ‘Urgent Call Catholic Chaplain’. One of our priests is always on 24/7 call for urgent cases.
