Bereavement Service

The Bereavement Service offers helpful advice and support with the practical administrative process following the death of a relative or loved one at St Marys Hospital.

On behalf of the Bereavement Service and the Trust we would like to offer you, your family and friends our sincere condolences.

What you need to do first:

To see the Bereavement Advisor, you will be asked to telephone to arrange an appointment. This is essential as it can take time to arrange for the medical certificate to be completed by the doctor, and for the possessions to be available for collection. The necessary paperwork will be processed as quickly as possible.

The Bereavement Advisor is there to offer you guidance on what you need to do following a death. If there is something you wish to ask, please, do so, every endeavour will be made to answer your queries.

Contact and location Details:

The Bereavement Office is situated on Level G in the North Hospital off the main corridor opposite the Eye Department.

The Bereavement Office is open between the hours of 9am & 3:30pm

Telephone: 01983 534615

As we may be dealing with bereaved families we may not be available to take your call immediately, but there is an answer machine available. Please leave a message and your call will be returned as soon as possible.

This survey will be treated in the strictest confidence, and if you wish to remain anonymous you do not need to give us your name and address. Thank you.
