A range of bereavement resources aimed to help general practice provide information and signposting to bereaved patients and families.

In partnership with Marie Curie:

Supporting your patient through loss (animation): overview guide for practices on tips to strengthen bereavement support. These include supporting bereaved people to ask for help from the practice if they need additional support, giving a compassionate bereavement response, signposting to support information and services and using consistent coding to help trigger potential condolence contact and sharing information on how to reach support in the community.

The Grief Support Guide provides information on the variety of bereavement support that is available in the UK, from self-help resources and helplines to peer support groups and grief counselling. The Guide also includes details of support for specific groups of bereaved people, e.g., widow(er)s, children, cultural and faith groups and people bereaved by particular types of death.
