Medics and Chaplains

The medical and chaplaincy branches support the men and women of the Royal Navy in body and soul. While the Medical Service promotes and maintains their fitness and well-being, the Chaplains give pastoral care and spiritual leadership, both vital contributions to the challenging work we ask our Navy to do. Modern and effective medical support is a fundamental part of the United Kingdom's military capabilities. The Royal Naval Medical Service promotes and maintains the health, fitness and well-being of Royal Naval Personnel which is vital to the Royal Navy's operational capability and effectiveness. The Naval Chaplaincy Service is a community of clergy & associates from a variety of denominations, dedicated to giving pastoral care and spiritual and moral leadership to the men and women of the Naval Service and their dependants.
