Bereavement Support

Losing a loved one can feel overwhelming, especially if the death was sudden, untimely and unexpected.  

To support you we provide a bereavement package for patients who received care from our community services teams in Pocklington and Whitby, Whitby Community Hospital, Scarborough & Ryedale Community Services, Fitzwilliam Ward in Malton and our eight GP Practices.

The bereavement package consists of a folder including:

  • A bereavement card
  • An informative bereavement booklet
  • A bespoke leaflet highlighting local services

To support you we have put together the following information to help you deal with the temporary changes to bereavement practices that have been made due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Our booklet also includes information to help you deal with the practical arrangements as well as advice and support  for coping with bereavement and grief
