Going into hospital?  The Catholic chaplain at University Hospital Coventry & Warwickshire in Walsgrave (and at St. Cross Hospital in Rugby) is Father Evaristus Sunday. Messages for Fr. Sunday can be left on 024 7696 7515. In an emergency contact the hospital switchboard on 024 7696 4000 (open 24 hours) and ask for the chaplain. There is always a Catholic chaplain on call. It’s important to let the hospital nursing staff know at the time of admission that you (or your relative) are a Catholic and would like the Catholic chaplain to visit you while you’re there.
