We have just recently re-named ourselves as the Department of Spiritual and Pastoral Care, though, inevtitably, we still tend to be referred to as Chaplains.

Subject: what to call the 'chaplaincy' department
We may have discussed this before - apologies if we have!
I have just had a request from one of the UK Lead Chaplains asking what
other teams are calling their department as it is under discussion in
his Trust. Senior hospital staff there have asked him to find this out
from across the UK in order to clarify their own thinking about the
possibility of changing the name of the department.
I would value any input on this topic that I can then pass on to him.
