The care we offer a patient's family and friends does not end with the death of their loved one. Our bereavement team is on hand to support family members, friends, children and carers through the emotional impact of grief. It’s important to remember that there is no set timescale for bereavement and everyone’s experience is different. So whether you feel you need our support now, or in the future, our services will be available whenever you need us, for as long as you need us.

The Bereavement Team, which is made up of professionals and trained volunteers, provide support in a number of different ways; by telephone, one-to-one sessions or by attending our bereavement support groups. These groups run for 6 consecutive weeks at regular intervals throughout the year. You are able to choose whichever service would best meet your needs.

Understanding and coping with bereavement can be very difficult for children and young people. We offer specialist bereavement support for children and provide guidance and information to parents, families, teachers and carers. We offer advice about how best to explain death and grief to children and how to help support a child or young person through this experience.

The bereavement service also organises an annual service that allows bereaved families, friends, and carers to remember, reflect upon and celebrate the lives of those they have lost.
