MORE than 500 religious leaders were granted licences by the Department of Health to permit them to conduct chaplaincy duties in hospitals.

The event took place in Newcastle on November 14 and they were the first group to be licensed by the department in this new partnership between church leaders and health practitioners.

The licence has been created by the department so that minsters can observe a code of practice and enable them to network with all hospitals. Only licenced pastors will have the right to conduct chaplaincy duties.
