2016 WINNER, UNSUNG HERO AWARD
Senior Muslim Chaplain at Birmingham Women's and Children's NHS Foundation Trust
Rehanah Sadiq is a Senior Muslim Chaplain supporting patients during their most challenging moments at Birmingham Women’s Hospital. She is involved with numerous patients, both in celebrating good news and providing comfort to those who need it most. Colleagues praised Rehanah as “inspiring” and someone who puts her “heart and soul” into her work.
“The award is brilliant, and it’s wonderful to see chaplaincy being promoted within the NHS. Many people are not aware of what chaplains can do and the role we can play in healthcare. Many people think of us as purely a religious service and wouldn’t even think to reach out.”
