Bereavement

Firstly, may we offer our sympathy to you, your family and friends during this very sad time.

Please find below some information to assist you.

What we do

The Bereavement Services team aims to ensure that the families of patients who have passed away in our hospital are cared for from the point of losing their loved one.

The staff working in our Bereavement Services team understand how important it is for people to receive the right support during such emotional and difficult times. They provide practical guidance such as how to register a death and where to start with planning a funeral as well as other information such as where to go for bereavement support. 

Advice Booklet

If your loved one has passed away, you should have received an In Your Loss booklet from the ward staff who were caring for them.

This includes a phone number for you to make an appointment with the bereavement team, who will support you through the process of what do next. 

A copy of this booklet can be found at the foot of this page.

Our location

Our office is located on the first floor of 'D Block', which is at the rear of Arrowe Park Hospital. The ‘In Your Loss’ booklet also contains a map of where to find us as we have dedicated car parking spaces outside the office for the convenience of people visiting the service.
