Health Services for Muslim Patients in Mecca

Hospital beds of seriously ill Muslim patients are to be turned to face Mecca as part of changes aimed at helping patients uphold their Islamic faith.

Dewsbury District Hospital in West Yorkshire will also provide Halal meals and will work to improve shower facilities. Staff at the hospital will take part in training sessions to teach them how to help patients with their faith worship.

A Mid Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust spokeswoman said it wanted to improve its service for Muslim patients. It also said that if the patients want they can position their staff and beds for the very ill Muslim patients to face the Qibla in Mecca.

Hospital matron Catherine Briggs said she had spoken to Muslim patients about how the service could be improved. She said, we always do our best to listen to our patients and are willing to adapt our nursing practices where possible to help patients uphold their cultural beliefs.
