Bereavement & Donor Support

The specialist nurse Bereavement and Donation Team provides a range of support to patients who are nearing the end of life, and to their families, and to recently bereaved families of patients who have been cared for in our hospitals.

The team also advises about organ and tissue donation, and all other matters relating to death including certification and registration, and post mortems.

We run bereavement support groups and provide follow up support to bereaved family and friends.

We work together with the local authority, police and coroner to support bereaved families.
