We also provide a bereavement support service that is available to people regardless of whether the patient died in the hospice, at home or in hospital.
The service is offered to relatives and friends in a variety of ways.
Anyone who has been affected by the death can receive this support from us - it does not need to be a family member, but could perhaps be a friend or neighbour.
