NHS Education for Scotland (NES) produced this guide through its Healthcare Chaplaincy Training and Development Unit. It was prepared for the guidance of the Spiritual Care Development Committee, a multi-faith group which represents the main faith and belief groups in Scotland and also includes representatives from chaplaincy, the health service and the Scottish Executive Health Department. The group is a forum for discussing ideas and issues concerning spiritual and religious care within NHS Scotland.
