Bereavement Support

Grief is a natural reaction to the loss of someone close. Our Patient & Family Support team can help you to face the grieving journey.

Our Bereavement Café is a twice-monthly drop-in group for anyone who has experienced bereavement…

When we experience the death of someone close to us, it can feel like our whole world has turned upside down – with each of experiencing grief in our own way. Sometimes, talking or listening to someone who understands can offer us comfort – even if just a little.

Our Bereavement Café offers a place to meet and connect with other local people who have had similar experiences to our own. It is a safe place to speak openly about our experiences, or simply just meet up for a coffee and a piece of cake.
