The Bereavement Service provides a sensitive, empathetic approach to the individual needs of relatives, at a time of loss.
Our Bereavement Service provides support and information for bereaved families when a patient has died in hospital.? The team will liaise with the family to provide the medical certificate, co-ordinate cremation forms where appropriate, hand over property where required and give advice on registration and arranging funerals where there is no next of kin.
