A prolonged visit to the hospital is a sobering experience: things taken for granted are suddenly scarce, and patients almost always find themselves reevaluating their life's priorities. There is often no better time for compassionate guidance and support, and the numerous representatives of Chabad-Lubavitch supply it in ample measure.

They bring good cheer, holiday spirit and hope to the hundreds of Jewish patients they visit in their rounds to Britain's places of healing.

To make use of this service, please contact your local Chabad centre. And may you and yours have only good health!
