Bereavement support from the NHS
People grieve in different ways and there is no right or wrong way to react to the death of a colleague, friend or family member. Many people find it helpful to reach out and talk to someone about their feelings, other may wish to deal with the loss in private.
NHS England and NHS Improvement have put together a suite of resources that aim to help you access support during what will be a difficult time for their staff, given the restrictions and changes to normal grieving patterns and processes for staff who come from diverse backgrounds.
The guide includes resources to support you personally during a bereavement and resources that will help you if you are a line manager feel better equipped to support your staff, noting the cultural diversity of our workforce.
