Jane Flint
Jane Flint

Jane Flint was appointed as the first paid non-religious Chaplaincy chaplain within an NHS hospital, to provide emotional and spiritual support to patients, families and staff.

Jane Flint was appointed in January 2016 and joined the existing Chaplaincy team at Leicester’s Hospitals to work across all three sites. Jane is available to help patients and their loved ones to work through the spiritual and emotional pain that can accompany life-changing illness or loss.

Jane’s background is firmly rooted in caring professions. She has qualifications in psychotherapy, counselling and adult education and has been trained in pastoral support by the British Humanist Association.

In previous roles in the NHS, Jane has provided counselling support to trainee doctors and in Primary Care.  She currently provides psychological support to children and families in the Nottingham Child Development Centre.

Jane comments: "I am enthusiastic about being a member of the Chaplaincy department at Leicester’s Hospitals and working collaboratively with the multi-faith team to ensure a service can be offered that meets the needs of all patients and staff. I have had a very warm welcome."

Since then Dr Louie Savva joined our team in May 2019, meaning that two of our chaplains are Non-religious.
